Baby cardigan

My cousin had a baby boy during the week. He has been named Harry William - which was quite a surprise as our family is not usually given over to 'royal' names! He was a bit of a big 'un too, over nine and a half pounds. Ouchie! Mum and baby are ok and I have started on the obligatory cardy. Ages ago, I got some Sirdar Snuggly DK Magic in blues which I have been waiting to use up, so a baby boy is just fine by me. I'm using a very old pattern of my Grandma's which I thought would show up the stripes of the yarn well - it's not the most interesting thing in the world (hence no WIP pic) but it's coming a long ok. I really want to get started on the Debbie Bliss celtic smock jacket for Lily-Rose as we'll be seeing her (can't wait!!) for the first time in a month and the DB Cashmerino feels so lovely and squishy (and I like it all the more because it was a complete bargain!!)

Edited to add: I've just noticed that you can see the beginnings of the cardy on the arm of the sofa in the pic of Cadbury below (who, by the way, is settling in very well and making himself right at home!)

Ouchie indeed! *eyes water*

Even plain boring baby things are good because you can finish them so quickly that there's no time to be bored. :-)

oooh yes, *crosses legs*!!!

Agree with Bronte, the cardi'll be finished soon, and there's nothing as satisfying as a quick F.O. !!!

Baby things are nice once in a while, but I feel like I'm knitting nothing but babby things these days. And we want pics, even if they are boring!
