More knitting!

I do like to have a knitting project on the go, preferably something straight forward that I don't need to concentrate on too much.  After the last, rather large project, it was great to do a small one, although on smaller needles so it did take quite a while to do!  This little baby blanket was fun to do as you see what pattern you get as it knits up!  True to it's name the Sirdar Snuggly Crofter Baby Fair Isle Effect wool did indeed give a fair isle effect without the need to change colours.  This mix of pinks, greens, blues, whites and lilac was ideal for a pram blanket especially not knowing what sex the baby would be.

Little Anna Rosa arrived very promptly, before the knitting was finished, but this did ensure I sat and got on with finishing it very quickly! The border was knitted on smaller needles so the sides were worked after the main piece and it seemed to take forever to stitch them up.

What is my next knitting project?  Well, having enjoyed knitting this I have started another one for a baby due at the end of July.  Have to say though that a large sewing project has been taking up most of my time at the moment though - photos to follow!
