Happy Thanksgiving to our American Friends!

I have to say it's kind of nice to watch all the Thanksgiving Festivities on TV. It kind of gives me another boost into getting into the spirit of the holidays.

I finished my housecoat that I had blogged about earlier. I added some bling to the cuffs and pockets. From this distance they're hard to see, but they're some square sew on diamond thingy's.



I've been wearing it all week, and I'm so glad because it's been getting colder. If there was any humidity we'd have snow by now, but thank goodness we don't. It makes it feel like a shorter winter the longer we go without the white stuff.









Another one of my wip is a Sirdar pattern of a Bolero sweater for a baby. This is a practice version which is a good thing as I've had to rip half of the back down because I'd made a mistake and didn't realize it until I started blocking it.....
(After thought...I'm using Naturalee by Lily, 100% cotton, 4 ply Sport Weight, Colour #214 Salmon)

I've got another couple projects on the go which I'll blog about later as I haven't gotten enough knitting done to show them.

This is what I feel like when I have to frog a piece of knitting. Noodles hit the nail on the head. Thhhrruuuuuppppppp (Blowing a raspberry)

love the pic of Noodles and I think that bolero is just GORGEOUS. Is that a current pattern ? If so I MUST go hunt for it !!

I agree this little jacket is sooo cute. It doesn't hurt that the baby wearing it is so sweet as well. I had seen the pattern on a newsletter from Yarnmarket. Here's a link to yarnmarket's catalogue of Sirdar patterns. http://www.yarnmarket.com/knitting/Sirdar-459.html
They have a lot of Sirdar patterns there, but I found mine at my local yarn store. It would be nice if Sirdar would offer downloadable pdf patterns, but I haven't found anyone who offers that.
