Finished Objects

Gosh, two posts in two days!  This must be a record!

I had a good day yesterday, finishing off some items that had been on the go for a while.

Firstly, there was this little newborn hat, knitted on circulars with a feather and fan pattern:


I'm not normally very good with lace patterns because I get a bit over-enthusiastic with yarn-overs and end up with way too many stitches and holes in wrong places. But this one worked well, and produced a very dainty-looking hat.  This is the pattern I followed; I did a rolled stocking stitch brim rather than the garter stitch brim suggested by the pattern.  

The other finished garment is this little boy's cardigan, which I am counting towards my 12 boy's jumpers for the year: 


It is a Stylecraft pattern which is available for free on the Deramores website - their free patterns are well worth checking out.  The double contrast stripes in the rib add a really smart touch to this cardigan.  This is the smallest size of the pattern (6-12 months); I'm also knitting the largest size - well, if you have read other posts you will know that I find it hard to finish a garment without having started something else in the meantime!
