The little cardigan is now finished.Yeah!! It actually looks quite good and I am pleased with it and thankfully Darcey likes it.

I have frogged two other things I had on the needles, one because I just wasn't happy with it and the other because I am sure the pattern is wrong.!!
I have now started a waistcoat with a furry collar for Amber, it is a sirdar pattern with cables and it is looking nice I am doing it in some Debbie Bliss merino aran I won on ebay a while ago, I will try to get a picture of the pattern for my next post. Jade also wants one, I haven't knit big sizes for a while so I shall definately be starting something for Gracie as well so I can keep getting a quick fix of a fast

Hubby's boxing club hosted a big show last night, so as I couldn't go I had a friend round and we had an indian takeaway and good chat, haven't done that for ages so it made a nice change. Joe boxed last night and he won which was good.

I shall now try and do a bit more knitting before they come back from Joe's football training.x

I am quickly editing this post to add a picture of the waistcoat I am doing now,

I love the fur trim. I have been wanting to do something like that for my little girl for some time now. I will get there eventually.

What a perfect sweater for a little girl. I love the fur trim too. I have seen that pattern that you are knitting up. I am sure I have the book with all the patterns for the aran yarn and I did start a cabled jacket for Isabelle from it. I think it is still sitting in the wardrobe. I cannot wait to see how cute your vest turns out too.

Thanks for the nice comments ladies people can be a bit snobby about fun fur but I really think it can brighten up a kids outfit.
Sue- you probably do have the same pattern book we do seem to have very similar taste in
