Twin cardigans

The evenings at the end of last year were rather long, so I had all the time in the world to look for a knitting pattern for my twin cardigans. I did not have much luck… You can call me picky, but I’ve been working with babies for over 12 years now and know same designs look extremely cute, but are utterly impractical for small babies. Finally I found this pattern which was a great inspiration.

I have to say the pink and purple one is my favourite. Even better they were a great fit when babies were 3.5 months old. I was thrilled I didn’t knit the cardigans in tiny newborn size, they would be way too small.

Sashiko inspired coasters

Me and staying up to date… it’s not really happening at the moment, it’s been way tooo much work, but I also need to remember that bills will not pay themselves, so can’t complain. I do love my job!

Here is what I made for my lovely friend, who appreciates hand made items for the home. Every time I visit her she offers tea… Sounds lovely, but she has such a variety of teas it always takes me forever to decide which one I’m going to have. Once I do, we enjoy lovely conversations at the table, sometimes with delicious cake…

But there was one thing missing… The coasters! You can just guess what my thinking was – great idea for a project for me and a hand made gift for my dear friend.

I just love the simplicity and the geometry of sashiko designs, so I looked up a few and eventually came up with these.
