I have been knitting Ysolda’s Coraline on and off for the past few months now. The plan was to start knitting it last summer and complete it before the winter, but now I have to wait till next Autumn/Winter to wear it (if I finish it by then). So far I have joined the sleeves to the body and I have started knitting the yoke. I do love knitting garments, but I’m such a slow knitter.
So I have decided to knit more baby and children garments. They should be quicker to knit than adult garments. Most of my friends are married now and hopefully they will be having babies soon. If I start knitting some baby garments/accessories, I should have some ready-made gifts (here I am trying to be organised). Lets see how I get on. Anyway, I popped by John Lewis haberdashery the other day and I found Fyberspate’s Scrumptious Baby Collection.
The patterns are absolutely gorgeous and unisex (depending on which colour yarn you choose). I love Kyoko’s Temari:
and Belinda Boaden’s Corlyma cardigan and hat:
If I had the time, I would knit everything from the book. They are so cute. The good thing about this book is the size, I can fit it onto my overflowing bookshelf and carry it around in my bag.
It’s a bit late in the night for knitting now, but I must get on with finishing my Coraline cardigan.
