Merry Christmas

The first signs of Christmas are here...


Buttons were added minutes before the cardigan was handed over to Tristan. His parents thought he looked like 'a million dollar baby' - and I'd have to agree :)

The pattern is 'Trellis' from Knitty. I enjoyed knitting this; the cables, the yarn, the size... it just all came together in such a perfect way. The yarn, by the way, is Berroco's Ultra Alpaca.

The photos are, however, not the best quality: these three shots and it went 'battery low'. Typical!

Quick Poncho

I've been wanting a poncho for some time, and a couple of weeks ago I came across some very cheap Natur Uld in a limited range of colours, though. The poncho was done in no time and even though the result reflects I didn't have much yarn to chose from, I like it. And it's perfect when driving.

What can I say... it's a lot easier to take somebody else's picture!
