Over the last number of weeks I have been lashing through some simple baby & kid sized knits. Sometimes, miles upon miles of stocking stitch can be very good for the soul.
First up, Bella by Dani Sunshine knit in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino in Clotted Cream, with some light purple leftovers. This is the second time I have knit this sweet pattern, though I hadn't realised how many ends would result from using the contrast colour!
Last up, is a hat & mittens set, for a soon-to-be 5 year old who loves the film Frozen. I made these up as I went along, vaguely referring to previous hat & mitt projects for structure. They are knit in Milla Mia Naturally Soft Merino sport weight in that particular shade of ice-ish blue.
I am ashamed to say that the mittens were originally intended as a Winter gift last year. I only picked them up again recently & discovered that my tension must have changed since I began the first mitten, which is visibly smaller than its counterpart. I believe my usually loose tension may have tightened slightly in the run up to December 25th - not surprising with the self-imposed knitting deadlines at that time of year!
