work in progress

Once again, Kids Clothes Week Challenge has been scuppered by illness and a severe case of cabin fever, resulting from not being able to leave the house due to torrential downpours. Little B has a cough like a seal's bark, and the sound of the sewing machine in the evening seems to wake her from much needed sleep. I have a couple of projects on the go that I hope to finish soon. In the meantime it's easier and quieter to crochet these granny squares.

little mabel

This project has been a long time in the making. It's been traveling with me up and down the country, it's been unravelled and started again, I've lost bits of it along the way, ran out of wool... Finally it's finished and I really must parcel it off to my friend's (not so new) baby Nina before she grows any bigger.

The pattern is Little Mabel by Sublime, and the wool is Sublime baby cashmere merino silk dk.

Here is Betty wearing her one, knitted for her by my friend Linda.
