Hmm...now where have we seen these before? This past week saw another Puerperium Cardigan and Aviatrix Hat go on and come off the needles, a shower gift for my sister's friends. I used bits and bobs from my stash (the leftover Noro from the previous Puerperium, some cotton, and some cotton-merino). The sleeves on this one are a bit shorter, and I opted for mostly-cotton as the baby is due in May.
It's always fun to let go of what colours you think should go together, and just throw them together in odd ways. I'm quite pleased with the result!I love these ceramic buttons, purchased at Wool Tyme in Ottawa; they add so much character for such a small detail!
The hat turned out larger than 0-6 weeks size, so this new baby will have a stylish knitted garment for Spring AND for Fall. Knitting is like that...you're never quite sure what you're going to end up with!
As for reading, I'm into Tim Wynne-Jones' The Uninvited. It's set in a fictional town that sounds an awful lot like the Perth area, so I can relate to the setting. It's part thriller, part family-drama, so I'm enjoying it though not reading it obsessively.
Stop by Small Things to join in this week's Yarn Along if you feel so inclined! I'm off for the next few days, so will check in next week if I don't manage to post again before the weekend.
