I have been a bit lazy around the house this week, moping I think as my boys have gone off to school for the first time in over 5 years and left me by myself.
I have been reading the Hunger Games series and of course thrown in a little knitting, cooking and crochet in between. In utter boredom a couple of days ago, I decided to unravel a frogged jumper and decided to use some of the wool to whip up something quickly. I ended up finally making the ruffled Hexagon Baby Cardigan from Yarn Tails, in its full glory.
I have made several of these little cardigan's before but never added the ruffles. It really does jazz it up a bit though, I must say. The wool is Patons Tasman (an acrylic blend) in white and purple. I used a 5mm hook and 3 heart buttons to finish it off.
Please do excuse the lighting in the pictures. I had a bit of a hard time trying to get the colour right then finally gave up. So although it looks dark in some and blue in some, it is actually more of a lavender colour in truth.
I think it turned out pretty cute in the end and it was so quick and easy to whip up! Not sure yet who I am going to give it too. It was not one of the projects on my long to do list. Woops!
Ah, but its always nice to whip up a something just because you feel like it. Don't you think?
Love and Light to All,
Hugs and smoochies xoxoxoxo
