New projects (again)

My brother and his wife are having a baby in November. It's very exciting for them. They weren't going to have children, and then they changed their mind. I bought these two lovely patterns and wool to knit some little boy things (as they are having a boy).

This is one pattern from the new Debbie Bliss book that I found. My daughter loves this, but unfortunately Cashmerino isn't the cheapest of wools.

Look at this lovely, lovely book. I happened to be in the neighbourhood of Carlys Crafts (the naughty shop) in Winton. The lady in there has so much yarn porn and naughty books - it is so tempting. So as you can see I gave in to temptation. This book has lots of lovely patterns in. My eldest daughter happened to be with me, and she ended up buying the wool for me to knit one of the cardigans for my grandaughter, so I am itching to start it. The cardigan pattern is in the middle, with the flowers, but she has chosen navy blue and two shades of pink for the flowers. It looks so nice. I so want to cast it on, but I have one hat to finish. I finished the hat last night and then realised I had done 2 rows too many. Which is annoying, because I have to unpick at least 6 rows to get the pattern right. Off to correct that, then I can get started on the cardigan. I do wish I could knit as fast as I can type, I would get loads done!!
