I’ve been a busy busy knitter over the last week – I have a bunch to show you.  Each project deserves it’s own time in the spotlight, so expect some more posts over the next couple of days!

First off the needles was Lilith’s birthday cardigan – My Aunt Doris (pattern by Kelly Brooker).

This is so cute, bright and soft that I want to snuggle with and do nothing else, ever.  It fits Lilith’s blooming personality to a tee and I’m excited to surprise her with it for her birthday.

It was hard to settle on buttons.  I had a few options in my button collection and I was open to buy something especially, if some just screamed to be the cherry on the top of this project.  The key contenders were some cute wooden buttons shaped like apples, small clear (boring) ones and the little black ones I opted for in the end.

I’m totally happy with my choice – I think it finishes the cardigan well.  I would usually avoid using black anything on baby clothes, but I think they keep the garment sophisticated and clean.  They’re not standing out as a show piece, so don’t draw your attention away from the star of the show – the yarn (okay, and the baby).

Sadly, her birthday isn’t for another couple of months so I may well buckle and give it to her before then.  I just want to see her cute-as-a-button face giggling in this cardigan!

But, it sits sensibly in wait for now.
