Knits for Dougie

Pattern from the Rowan ‘Just Baby’ book by Lisa Richardson. Knitted in ‘Sublime’ Baby Merino Silk.



This has been sitting waiting to be finished while other more urgent projects took over. I enjoyed knitting the all-over cable pattern. I love the stitch but can’t find a name for it in any of the stitch dictionaries.

In my button box I had some safari animals just waiting for the right camouflage cardi to live on. Here they are.


This little jacket is from the Debbie Bliss Special Knits book. Bethan and Tony had decided on that last surprise so it had to be gender neutral; beyond white it’s amazing how difficult that becomes! I thought the green velvet could make it festive for Christmas.



The next two sweaters were also Debbie Bliss patterns, this time from the Baby Cashmerino 3 book. Both were knitted before Dougie arrived so I was still avoiding anything in pinkish or bluish hues; if only to avoid the inevitable comments.

I loved the little polo and left off the buttons until after Dougie arrived. The Star Motive sweater has an alternative heart motive.
