another granny’s favourite

I do get a bit stuck on my old favourites when it comes to knitting patterns. This is a sweet one with a vintage touch that I just love.

The pattern is granny’s favourite by tiKKi and just perfect. I love Georgie’s patterns because they are straight forward, top down knits and they look so sweet when all done. Oh and there is also a great range of sizes from little newborns up to my big girls. Not that I do much knitting for my big girls.

The yarn is a yet to be released one from Bendigo Woollen Mills that I just love. Super soft and lovely and it’s been a dream to work with. I don’t even know the name of it yet but can’t wait to find out more about when it’s being released. You can’t go wrong in cream for babies so this is a favourite of mine already.

The vintage buttons are for the craft stall at our school fete later in the year and I’m donating this little number to a little raffle for our stall. The buttons were just so perfect and my thoughts are to sew the buttons to little squares of cardstock and sell them as they are. It’s like they were made for this project.

Ravelry details are here. It’s back to the baby surprise jacket that I’m knitting that really will be a surprise when it’s done as I’m dragging the chain on it. I’ve ripped it out a couple of times but am going to concentrate and get it finished.

Happy knitting!
