Despite the fact that I must have thousands of knitting patterns, when I recently saw this pattern and yarn in a knitting shop recently I knew I had to make it for a friend who will soon be having a baby boy. I made it in the first size, and it is made with just a single 50g ball of this love sirdar snuggly crofter DK yarn. Don't you just love the fairisle effect, which has been made small specifically for small knits. You can see how different it looks on the front and the back due to the different widths of the pieces. but it still all works together. I even like the randomness where the front joins the back (and yes I'm very proud of my seams, lol)
I am happily married with two wonderful sons. I work full-time as a radiographer. I like to make stuff. Cardmaking, knitting, crochet. I'll try anything crafty.I also have an unhealthy love of maths: I did a degree for fun.
I post on my blog in the hope that I will inspire others to create. I am more than happy for you to be inspired by anything I post, and make it your own. Likewise, I get inspiration from all sorts of sources including the blogs of other crafters, although I would never knowingly directly copy another's work I visit so many blogs I pick up inspiration all over the place. Please know that if you are in my blog lists then you inspire me.
