I haven't been knitting recently as much as I'd like to but slowly I'm getting back on track with my passion. I've got head filled up with some ideas, I only have to find some more spare time to bring them to life.
I managed to finish few small projects recently. One of them is this cute little cardi for my friend's first baby due in mid May. The pattern is Abigail (Rav pattern page), very easy to follow and quick to knit. I used some lovely merino that I bought few years ago in Italy from a street vendor (I do miss those street markets). I hope my friends likes my baby shower gift for her baby girl.
The other day I played a bit with crochet flowers. It seems like G. is always losing her hair clips so I bought a box of 30 plain ones and decided to decorate them myself. My crochet skills are very limited but I'm quite happy with this simple decoration:
I even made a bigger flower and then attached it to a simple baby beanie. It will probably be given away as a gift as well. I used some Araucania Ulmo for the flower and Rowan Milk Cotton for the hat. Love the result!
And last but not least: my Shalom cardigan is almost finished (Rav pattern page). I need to weave in ends and sew the buttons on and block it.
