And yes I am playing with these too

First Attempt

and the finished product

Pattern - Easy Baby Cardigan (free) ; details here
Only modifications were the sleeves (yes they are missing)
I did not have the right size DPN's for them, so I went up one size and made it a vest by just doing an edging.

A very simple, quick knit, which I will be using again

Yarn - Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 8ply Citrus (top photo is truer to colour)

This is a gift for an upcoming, unknown sex, baby


  1. The little baby cardigan is so cute and not too many seams........lovely.

    By the way thanks for the link to Mrs Denvers hilarious blog "Cobwebs and Catnip".

  5. Thanks Maria I love this little cardi. Very little sewing up - just my cup of tea.

  6. Oh so sweet, so softy! Thanks for sharing Maria, I LOVE it so!!! :)

  7. Fantastic first attempt! I never could get the hang of knitting. Was supposed to do a bag on circulars for felting with my yarn and fiber group but wasn't able to make the meeting. Love those cute potholders you made for The Garden Bell and others. How ever to you get those patterns in there is beyond me. :) Best wishes, Tammy

  8. Lovely Maria - I quite like using circular needles once you get the hang of it. You have made this really well - great work.x

  9. This is extra special, Maria!
