Where did you get that hat?

Just thought I'd post my latest finish.

It's the whirlygig? hat from Hattitude.

I interpreted it in my own way.

In the photo it's being modelled by my friend, the hat is for her son who is at university, and he will love the hat

Another baby cardigan

I finished this on Thursday evening, and it has been given to the baby , a little girl, Amelia Jane, born on 15/6/10 at 8.08 weighing 7lb 1oz. The other pink jacket and the pinwheel one also went to her. The pattern is another UKHKA one. I really like their patterns and wish they did some adult ones.

Another baby jacket.

I've finished the baby jacket for a colleague's expected grand daughter. Am wondering whether to knit something in a neutral colour "just in case" they got it wrong, but then again, I do still have the pinwheel baby jacket. I have started another in pinks, might be a good idea to have a couple of spares stashed away, there seems to be a bit of a boom going at the moment.
The above Jacket and the one I have started are two more UKHKA patterns, their patterns look very good and so far have been very simple to follow, mind you this year I will have been knitting for 34 years properly, and am not afraid to tackle something new. Saying that the UKHKA patterns give very good results, have clear instructions, so even a beginner knitter can produce a very good looking garment. My only moan is they only seem to have baby/toddler patterns so far.

Interesting site/ patterns

You might have noticed the last two baby garments I have worked on are patterns from UKHKA
These patterns are very simple, yet effective
the only thing I don't like about the site is..that CURRENTLY they only have bay/toddler designs!

2 finishes and a start

Well, I have finished the sleeveless jumper. It is actually black, but for some reason appears navy blue in the photo. Perhaps tiz the flash?
I also finished a hat from the Hattitude book, but it mysteriously disappeared after Samantha trying it on. Will try to track it down and get a photo of it.
I have also started a baby jacket for a colleague's first grandchild. They have been told that baby is a girl, that is why I am knitting in pink. Although I would never trust the scan, and wouldn't believe what sex a baby is until it is in the Mum's arms
