Rocketry Cardigan

Rocketry is all done:

Pattern: Rocketry Baby Cardigan by Dream in Color

Yarn: Mission Falls 1824 wool, 2 balls Denim, 1 ball Stone, 1 Ball Cocoa, 1 ball Basil, 1 ball Dijon

This yarn is very soft, and comes in so many beautiful colours. However, it is so fluffy, that I can imagine it pilling right away if you knit with the recommended 5mm needles.

Used 4.5mm needles, and should fit about 6-9 months. Very quick and easy! I had enough left overs for a hat, too:

Pattern: Striped Hat from Adorable Knits for Tots

Size: small, about 9-12 months

Every time I start a new project, Grace asks me if I'm making something for her. When I tell her no, she gets so sad. That girl just loves gifts! So, I started a bolero for her.

Such an adorable sweater and hat. You make me envious...your projects are all coming along so nicely.

Making something for Grace would be good too. Can hardly wait to see her model it!
