ahh, a few days away can work marvels for you UFO pile, can't it?!
Entomology is off the blocking pins and came for a trip to the beach. The colours remind me so much of the Australian coast, so I was well pleased with the resulting photo shoot.
here was the alternative shot, not nearly as ethereal!
The cashmere/merino blend is divine to wear - so light and airy, but very warm indeed. Can't wait to get some more of this cooler weather so can wear it a bit more.
and as previously mentioned, there are a little bundle of babes being born in my world. I was starting to really stress about getting everything done, but this week have managed to finish off a substantial amount of them.
This little bolero cardigan is a freebie from Debbie Bliss - you can find it linked on Ravelry or here. Knit all in one piece, then the only seaming is sleeve and side seams - huzzah!
I broke out some more of my Pear Tree stash for this one - I bought it at Bendigo '08 and it was unbanded, so not sure...
I also made these two sweet little hats and have plans for another few. It the Umbilical cord hat from Stitch'n'Bitch; a personal fave for a quick go-to baby project. It's simple, quick, and easily modified to fit a range of baby head sizes.
and it's a great stash-buster! These two are made of some Bendigo Rustic "Peppercorn" that I bought years ago to make a cardigan for me (so I have a lot of it!) I've since decided that it's not really that great a colour for me, particularly in a whole garment. The little bit of colour trim is more Pear Tree yarn.
My Untangled Yoke cardigan is coming along really well too - I would say I'm about 3/4 of the way to the underarms? Love working all in one piece, but it can feel a bit slower. Well, until you reach a certain point and realise you're almost home, that is!
I'm just glad it looks like I'm all on track - all babes should be in receipt of something woolly by time of birth, and I should have my new cardigan in time for Bendigo!
