A friend of mine is having her first baby, which is exciting. Especially because she’s having a girl so I can knit  something lovely in pink.

My mother found this beautiful pattern for a hat and cardigan called Rosy Posy. It’s an obnoxious name but the ensemble is charming and the yarn is extraordinary:

'Sublime' baby cashmere merino silk DK: 75% extra fine merino; 20% silk; 5% cashmere

'Sublime' baby cashmere merino silk DK: 75% extra fine merino; 20% silk; 5% cashmere

I’d better get moving on it … I ambitiously chose to knit the newborn size and the baby is due in 4 months. Just as well I’m up to here, isn’t it?

Oh dear. Let’s see what Wednesday brings.
