Finally Finished Something Friday

I have not been doing very much knitting lately, but I did finish my colourful baby jacket. And I am REALLY happy with the end result, and hopefully so is the gorgeous Ivy who will be wearing it.



Ivy (and her family) are leaving our town and moving to New South Wales in the mountains. This jacket should keep her warm during her first winter in snow country.


Lovely wooden flower buttons


I wrapped the present in a playsilk that I dyed in pale pink. We have lots of playsilks, simply because I love to experiment with colour.



Fingers crossed that I will have something for show and tell next week, as that will mean I have been able to get some knitting done! I do not like it when I am too busy to fit in knitting.

Look forward to seeing everyone else's knits at FO Friday at chrisknits
Also linking with Linda at Natural Suburbia for Creative Friday.

Chris has since informed me that she won't be doing FO Fridays anymore - I will miss them! But she has sent me over to Fibre Arts Friday at Wisdom Begins In Wonder and to Freshly Finished Friday at Hardknitlife

Blessings,
Jayne
