Finished objects & the Big Reveal continues...

Ages ago I knitted Daisy in Pattons 100% Cotton for a pregnant Airedale loving friend in Canada. The cardigan has been finished for a while but needed some flowers sewing on which means a delay as I don't like sewing. But finally I've kicked my butt into gear & it's finished:

The Entrelac Shawl which was intended for the same baby is however still unfinished I should have chosen this project more carefully as entrelac in 4 ply does NOT make good poolside knitting.

However I do have something else to go in the parcel:

Purple Velvet Ribbon Tie Bootees
Purple Velvet Ribbon Tie Bootees


Knitted in Jaeger Baby Merino & the pattern is from 50 Baby Bootees to Knit as is the pattern for these:

Regia Passion Textured-Cuff Booties
Regia Passion Textured-Cuff Booties


These were knitted in Regia 6 ply sent to me by my SP5. I had some bits left over as I had to buy another ball due to running out of yarn on my first pair of socks, so put them to good use. As I'm using left overs I couldn't get them to match but I think they look cute anyway. Typically the first one was knitted a while ago & the second today whilst sitting watching DD swim at a gala. During this same gala I also sent a text message to a certain person as today being December 4th was reveal day - I've been spoiling Lixie & I think she's enjoyed it
