Back in the groove

It's been a while since my last post, I guess to be honest, after a break from blogging over christmas, the weeks just kept ticking over until, hey presto 2 months had gone past! 
It just goes to show how easy it is to have large 'bloggy breaks' as many other bloggers put it.

Alot has happened in the past two months, lots of knitting, (not much sewing)  kids holidays and then the readjustment back to school, plus my laptop broke down and I lost 6 months of photos....I am still hurting over that one : ( 
There has been alot of hospital visits, most of which were for a family member who had a stroke, luckily they are home, and finally recovering well : )

Luckily though I was able to recover photos from Ravelry so the following are of some pics that I completed  over my break;

The first one was a jacket for my nephews christmas present

The pattern is Duck Soup by annypurls on Ravelry.  I especially loved the knitted closures.... it was a first for me, and I would definately do these again.

It was past Lil Misses bedtime when the following photos were taken, hence a not so happy girl....

Number two, was finishing the Tikki KAL ( knit a long ) before christmas.  I knitted the Sorello the girl version.  Knitted in cotton, so Lil Miss will be able to wear this both seasons.

I love the puffed sleeves

Not shown is the back lace peplum.

Third and last to show for today is a little summer/autumn transitional cardie for Lil Miss

The pattern is from Sublime #613 Childrens Double Knitting, the pattern is called Camille

I knitted this up in a Angora Merino as suggested, and the result is lovely.... it is sooooo soft.  I would like to knit myself something in this, if only it wasn't so expensive!

Phew! glad out got this post out of the way....
