Dot Scribbles Knits!

I have completed my first knitting project for the baby! A little white cardigan, it's not perfect but I am pretty pleased with it as up until now all I could knit was squares and scarves! We've been getting a little more organised, we ordered the pram last week which I am really pleased with and we have started looking at cots. The time seems to be flying by and I have a lot of knitting to catch up on as my mother-in-law is already on her third cardigan!
It's been pretty busy round here lately, we have had weddings and birthday parties galore! My lovely sister opened her brand new cupcake shop last week where she will be teaching baking and decorating classes, if you are ever in the Midlands and want to learn how to make the perfect icing then check her out! 
Dr S starts his first job as a doctor today so things were a little tense in the Scribbles household this morning, I know that he will be fine but any first day of a new job is pretty scary isn't it!

What a lovely little cardie. The little bump will have plenty to wear I am sure. Keep at it.

Hope the new DR had a good day on his first day!

Dot said...

Jo - Thank you! The Dr had a good but long day, think he may just sleep all weekend!

I can't knit very well at all, but Mum's been knitting for a colleague of mine.

If you're looking for any knitting patterns etc, I'd definitely recommend this book - http://notesoflife.co.uk/2011/03/the-ultimate-book-of-baby-knits-the-review/ - I got it from Amazon Vine to review a while back.

The cardi looks amazing!

I've just started teaching myself how to knit and the best I've got is a haphazard looking scarf with various knit patterns going on. My mum's been knitting since she was a child so keeps trying to correct but the problem is I'm a lefty, she's a righty, so it just ends up with my work being twisted lol.

Hope the Dr is loving his new job :D

Nikki-ann- what a lovely book, think I may have to get a copy of that!

Emma- Thank you! Stick with it, until I did the cardie, all I had knitted was squares for a blanket and scarves! Youtube is ever so good for learning how to do things as you can watch it while you do it, not always easy to follow from a book!

You can knit? I am so impressed and envious of your skills.

Dot said...

Vivienne- ah thank you, no need to be envious though, I am not that skilled! I love it though, so relaxing, my mother-in-law has taught me a lot over the last few months- she has the patience of a saint!
