At last!

Shoes for peanut finished! Phew. Another thing crossed off the list. Now I just need to work out what to knit next...
On a slightly different note, I have worked out how to facilitate the fast knitting of things that would take me forever. Like this adorable little cardigan. I found the pattern and bought the yarn, and put both in the post to my mother-in-law. Hey presto, less than two weeks later, the finished product arrived on our doorstep!
I eventually found the perfect buttons at the Be Be Bold stand at the Quilt and Craft Fair, so now it's being worn with much joy and enthusiasm!
Yarn: Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 10 ply in Lake
Size: 2 years
Mods: full rather than 3/4 length sleeves

The booties are so cute and I love the combination of blue and orange together. Wow what a fantastic grandma your daughter has, making such beautiful garments for her to wear and she is such a cute little model too!
