Please note: this post should be read picturing me skipping around the house.
I have made something. An actual article of clothing. Yes indeed. LOOK!
I knit that. Isn't it cute? It's for a little girl who is 12 weeks old this week. So it's a good job I finished it, because foolishly I chose the smallest size (3-6 months). So it was now or never really.
It's from this lovely book.
You can also find the pattern free here on Ravelry.
It was pretty straightforward for the beginner knitter that I am. I only needed help at the very end. But I found someone at the crafty group I've joined who showed me what to do. Such a satisfying feeling.
And I think it really can't be beaten for cuteness.
I've already got plans for my next knitting project.
Will keep you posted. And thanks everyone for your lovely comments on my growing blanket collection. I wouldn't be doing any of this without you and I'm chuffed to bits that you take the time to comment on what I get up to.
