YOP Year 2 Update

Morning Bloggers,

Can’t believe I managed to get here to update early this morning, its only a fluke as we have my nephew Senan’s christening this afternoon to attend to. I did manage to get in to see my niece this week, Roisín, and what a cutie she is and she was awake so I got a cuddle which is just priceless.

Everything has been busy as normal this week with the normal running to and fro, we are settling into that and being this busy is just preparing me for December, I still don’t have much computer time but any spare time I do have I’m knitting with it so I’ve progress for you all. My stitching bug has still gone and I’m just hoping it shall return soon as the winter comes in but I won’t worry about it just yet.

Last week, you’ll remember I had the Demne and Kimono blocking, well I got buttons sewn on both and little ties put in on the Kimono cardigan and here is how they are looking now. I’ve also put them with the sleepsuits I had gotten with these patterns in mind.

Demne Cardigan all blocked and with buttons.

 I also cast on a little sweater, the pattern of which came in a little booklet to go with a knitting magazine. I had found this 4ply white baby yarn in my stash and is perfect for it. Its knit all in one go and I’ve the front and front of the sleeves done and am now onto the back.

Baby Sweater

This is what I will work on mainly for this coming week.

With all the yarn that I had gotten last week I decided to cast on one of the hats that’s intended for Benjamin for Xmas. The pattern is Strib Hat. Its been knit in Benjamin’s favourite colour green and I’ve added a little light grey just for a bit of interest to it. I am hoping I’ve enough yarn to knit matching mittens left over.

That’s all on and off the needles for this week. Knitting intentions this week are to get hopefully more done on the baby sweater and perhaps another Xmas hat or mittens done but we shall see what the week sends.

Happy Knitting,
Ruth.

    Oh my Ruth!! What talent you have. Precious little sweaters. Such a nice hat for Benjamin. Emerson's favorite color has always been green. 😉

    Oh the little sets are ADORABLE! And truly, I had not thought of buying a sleeper and making a little sweater to go with it. I will have to make a couple to keep on the side for baby shower gifts.yours are absolutely adorable!

    Love all your new knits, the baby things are just so sweet! I like the hat too, the green is lovely with the grey.I think you get on brilliantly when it's hectic, you will be as cool as a cucumber in December!Hope you had a lovely christening!Have a lovely week with lots of little rests hopefully!x

  5. They look lovely after blocking; although I bet they were lovely before 🙂 How nice to match them up to a sleep suit to make a complete outfit!

  6. In my dreams I will knit as well as you someday…if I live that long! LOL! What beautiful items you make…every one of them looks perfect and gorgeous. Of course, I love the little baby items…so precious and Benjamin's hat I'm partial too since I have a Benjamin also…he has a bigger head though (literally and figuratively) as he is now 32….no more babies at my house. I love the grey you put with the green too. So glad to see you on here….I was gone last week and was hoping you'd be on this week! Hope you had a great time at the christening…what a special day. Have a great week!

    I agree with Faith–you are going to be all set and ready for life with a baby by the time December rolls along. Your little sweaters are just so precious, and your little bambino is going to be oh-so lucky to be so warm and snuggley in them. Your olders are lucky as well to have those upcoming hats and mittens to keep them warm.*smiles and cheery thoughts sent to you*
