Happy Friday, are you all ready for the weekend? I'm back to show you a couple of finished baby projects today.
I used 5 balls of Rooster Almerino DK, a gorgeous soft blend of alpaca and merino which shows off the stitch definition beautifully.
Next up, I've been making some Pom Pom Bootees, I used different weight yarns to get the different sizes.
The white pair are the larger out of the two, I used MillaMia which is a sport weight on 2.75mm, they would fit a 3-6 month old.
The blue pair are knit with Cashsoft 4ply again on 2.75mm needles and have turned out a lot smaller, fitting a 0-3 month old. I decided to add some pompoms for the cute factor and used the Clover Pom Pom Maker in small for the white and extra small for the blue pair. I can't recommend the Clover Pom Pom Maker enough, it's simple to use and you get a perfect pom pom, every time.
That's all for the knitting, the next part is photo heavy of what I've been up to this week. Do you remember me saying on Wednesday, I was hoping the rain kept off so we could take the little ones out? Well it did and we went to Bantock House and Park.
Even the grown ups were having fun.
Then yesterday, my friend Kerry and I went out for the day. We went to Hobbycraft and picked up some Project Life which has 25% off at the moment then had lunch at Pizza Hut, I love the lunchtime buffet!!!!
After lunch we drove to Ironbridge a beautiful Shropshire town by the river, famous for it's iron bridge across the river.
The obligatory selfie by the bridge ;-)
Have a great weekend.
