Jonah and the Penguins.

I have a new Cousin! My cousin, Jamie, and his Partner, Harriet, have had a baby - called Jonah. I've just finished sewing up his cardiagan, made from Opal sock yarn, using the Knitty pattern 'Devan'. An easy knit, and should be fairly indestructible, I hope.

The lovely Penguins are from Injabulo, and are sewn on VERY TIGHTLY to avoid choking.


I'm also still knitting the pink cashmere shawl - miles to go - and finished the somewhat hideous shawl for my niece to wear as a bridesmaid (hideaous because I detest the wishy-washy colours, you can see them below. Nice yarn to knit with!)

Need to start another pair of socks for lots of journeys over the next week - I'm off to 'Unravel' on Staurday, and then having a day at the Jewish museum in Camden with my mum on Tuesday.

That has to be the best baby cardi I have ever, ever seen. Really stylish and not babyish, but still fun.

thanks Alice, for both your comments! The cardi was quite fun for a stocking stitch piece - had to fiddle to make the stripes match, which added about 4 or five extra ends to weave in, but other than that...

Congrats on the new cousin. Have to agree with Alice, I've seen Devan before but not liked it but I love yours. I think the colour choice is perfect and I'm loving the penguins.

Do mindme asking which shade of Opal this was knitted in - I've knitted a baby set (hat, mittens and bootees) in the same yarn but lost the label. I was going to try and find some more to knit a baby cardi to go with it....
