A good friend of my from school had a baby last month in Australia. For some reason, I had been certain that R was having a baby girl. So, I was very organised and knitted a little newborn cardigan for the the baby in preparation for 'her' arrival (it is winter in Australia, so a long-sleeved cardigan would've been appropriate). However, 'she' proved to be a 'he', so I needed to re-think my gift to welcome his arrival... This week I finally made my way to Peter Jones to pick up some little mother of pearl buttons in order to finish this project. The pattern is called Kina (long-sleeve version) and comes from a French knitting site called Kids-Tricots(they have some lovely patterns). I used Debbie Bliss baby cashmarino wool in a lovely pink-lilac colour.
So now it is ready and waiting for the next friend who actually has a baby girl!
