Lily the Pink Design by Sublime

So Grand Purl Baa and I did go to Tangled Yarns within 48 hours of my spying it. And very nice it was. I bought some Debbie Bliss Baby Casmerino and am using a Sublime pattern to knit a cardigan for Kylie's imminent baby girl.

I dutifully knitted a tension square. I have perfect tension I might add but wools are different....and sure enough the square came out at 11cm - not 10cm. So I went down a kneedle size and knitted another square...this time too small at 9.5cm. So I've gone up a 1/4 size and am hoping for the best.

My daughter is 6 hours off being able to go for her "P"s so we drove carefully over to Sherwood to Threads and More where I bought a Debbie Bliss book just in case there was a disaster and a pair of needles that I didn't have already. I have hundreds of pairs of needles but never the ones I need!!!

And so now I am knitting - hooray hooray. Watched two silly movies with the kids - Drag Me to Hell and 17 Again. Hubba Hubba the boy in 17 again is a bit like the next Tom Cruise....Oh and cleaned the bathroom and baked bread so the Domestic Goddess within me is feeling quite fine thank you very much.

I hope you are intending to make the ears to go with it.
