Knitted baby jacket finished and I made a fabric purse.

Hello everyone, How are you all?

Thank you for your comments and Happy New Year messages I hope you all had lovely family holidays and are ready for 2018.

I finished a little knitted baby jacket for my new Grand Son when he arrives,

I used DK yarn picked up from my local Hobby Craft store it's 0-3 months size, the pattern is an old one from the Women's Weekly magazine here in the UK. It was one of my mums so I cannot even tell you which issue it was as it is years old,  and the baby hat is one of my own patterns.

I finished a simple bobble hat for my Grand daughter the yarn is Aran weight I made it to fit a 7 year old and there was enough left to crochet a scarf with a cream strip added in the middle, then to finish I attached 4 pom poms.

While I have been knitting for the new baby I didn't want to leave Suzie out she was so pleased and has been wearing it for school.

I also made a cute little coin purse with a zip using scraps of fabric I had.

now OK it is small but in stead of using it for money it is an ideal size for scissors, needles and cotton. Not only that this was the first time I have attempted to insert a zip, I hate projects with zips If I can avoid them I will but I thought it was about time I had ago and this is the finished one.

With a little more practise I think I will be OK to make another one with a zip and maybe a little larger.

That's all for now, till next time.
Happy knitting/stitching

I just finished a knit hat in a colorway that looks almost exactly the same!

Mine was Liberty Wool in a shade called Painted Desert. Lovely projects!
