Easter Knitting

This Easter weekend, I have been mostly knitting.

I have been thinking about starting my first proper knitting project and thought a simple cardigan for the boy would be a good place to start. It was either that or socks, but my trips to the local yarn shop are always slightly fraught as Mil is not a great one for shopping... I think I just went 'Cardigan, I'll knit a cardigan' with that crazed and harassed look of a mother to a two year old. I then realised that I had better make a very tiny baby cardigan first in case I make a mess of it and waste a fortune spent on yarn. There seems to be a steady stream of babies being produced at the moment so should it be a success it will not go to waste.

So here I am making a thing, a real item of clothing, and I am having a ball following the pattern.

This is the pattern, and this is the yarn.

I have also been eating quite a bit of chocolate... yum.
