I hope we get to see her wearing the white bobble jacket, although the photo doesn't do it justice (wrong camera angle). I didn't save many patterns amongst my knitting stuff in the loft, but that pattern is now classed as a vintage pattern and I made several in different colours for the baby's daddy nearly 40 years ago.
The white blanket that I made earlier in the year, the wool was supposed to be DK, but it came out more 4 ply weight, they said yesterday that they are going to use it for the christening.
I've been quite disappointed in some of the wool that I've bought, it's not been cheap wool and it's been well known brands that indicate on the label that the wool has been produced in the UK in the mill regions of West Yorkshire. However on close inspection of the label, most of it is made in Turkey under license.
I haven't done any more knitting, unfortunately I've been in hospital twice and I've had the decorator in doing several rooms....However, I've got plans to make this jacket which I can take over in October (hopefully if I keep well enough to make it there) I think this is so cute for the Christmas period.
I got everything parcelled up and posted before I was in hospital and I'm quite impressed with Royal Mail.
I took it to my local PO around Tuesday dinner-time, it went to the Sheffield depot and was at Heathrow by Wednesday morning, it left the UK on Wednesday night and after going through HK customs it was delivered on Monday …less than a week !
I paid for it to be tracked and signed for, and the price was £19 …I was getting quotes on-line around £40 with courier companies and Parcel Force...so a big thumbs up for Royal Mail.
It doesn't get really cold in HK, nothing like the UK temperatures, it's the aircon that can be fierce in establishments, so, ATM I think she has enough cardigans until she gets a bit more weight on her …then I've several patterns that I've got plans to knit ....like you say, I've got the knitting bug again.
