Just before last christmas I received a lovely comission from a sweet crafting pal, to knit a pink cardi for her little girl. She had a favourite pink cardi which was far too small for her to wear any longer which was making her unhappy. I managed to find a knitting pattern which was a close enough match to the original cardi and some lovely soft yarn in the right shade of pink, so set about getting it knitted over the christmas holidays.
Here's the finished cardi ready to be packed up and shipped off to it's new home.
and here's the cardi being modelled beatifully by it's new owner
I think the pretty flower buttons were a great hit judging from this next pic
After finishing the cardi there was almost half of the yarn left over, so I decided to knit an extra 'surprise' in the form of a Ballet Wrap top.
Here it is finished and ready to be posted out
and here's a very happy young lady modelling her 'surprise' extra
Now who wouldn't want to knit pretty things for this gorgeous little one ? I really enjoyed making these for her and so happy to hear that she was delighted with them when they arrived. Thanks for sending me the stunning pix Katie.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my latest projects. I think I'll share a card with you next time, so until then, keep on crafting !
