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.
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.
You might have noticed the last two baby garments I have worked on are patterns fromUKHKA 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!
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
