Posts Tagged ‘in threes cardigan’

Well somehow over a week slipped by and I didn’t even realise it!

I have been way too busy living life instead of blogging, and working really hard on a little project which I will hopefully be ready to share next week.

Anyway, I had said I would try and catch up photographing the things I’ve been making.

This is a little cardigan I made for Alice, in perfect timing because the temperature has certainly been dropping on these lovely Autumn afternoons. And by dropping I mean it’s been getting down below 17 degrees, which for us Queenslanders means it’s positively Arctic 🙂

And this is Alice pulling her best ‘I’m cold’ face.

The pattern is the ‘in threes‘ cardigan which I found on ravelry. I used a wool & silk blend yarn which my mum found on clearance at the craft store for only $3 a ball. Gotta love a cardigan for under $10! The buttons I bought ages ago from the wool shack, who have a beautiful selection of buttons. They are coconut buttons with detailed carved designs which I unfortunately didn’t capture very well in my photos. I love the tweedy look of this yarn. Perfect for hiding all the food and stuff that always ends up making it’s home on a baby’s clothing.

So baby’s warm, I’m happy.

In other news, today we went to the Capalaba regional park for the first time. I don’t know why we have never been there before when we live so close, I guess we just didn’t know how awesome it is!

Feeding the ducks, always a hit.

Giant metal drums that make a big loud bang.

Alice loved hitting this enormous xylophone.

Then we watched from the sidelines. Estelle was busy running around in crazy circles.

Way too much excitement… the slide? The swing? The rope ladder? All of them at once?

So much fun! And a great way to end the weekend, hanging out together at the park.

We will definately be back.
