A knitted Christmas gift

Cardigan and cap
I bought the yarn for this Baby Cap and Cardigan in April, as a planned Christmas present for my boyfriends sister’s baby.

It took a lot more time to knit than I had expected, and to sew together the cap was really a strange experience. But now it’s all done. With buttons and this week I knitted the stripes for the cap and wrapped it in a red package with green ribbons for Felix.

I gave the Christmas present early (this week) since I was afraid he would grow out of it too quick. It’s knitted for size 6 months babies, but Felix is growing every day so much! He is only 2,5 months old, but the cardigan was to small:

Warm stuff
He didn’t like wearing it, and this is the only time he will be pushed and forced into it. But the cap fitted, and will do so for a while:

We’ve spent lots of time with Mr Big this weekend. I need a better camera, I love taking photos but out of about 200 these are the okay ones:

    Oh you have that pattern? Good for you! I do too but I know it’s really attractive and hard to get by so you might want to publish it here, perhaps?

    Some great site you’ve got!

    All the best!
