FO: Wrap Cardi

Just before Cassie was born I finished her little blue wrap cardi but hadn't blogged about it because I needed to sew some poppers on it.  I still haven't sewn any poppers on, but it was the only thing I could find at short notice to dress her in yesterday so I stuck some stick on velcro on instead.  I'll still need to get some poppers but the velcro was fine for the short term.  Obviously I'm biased but she looks so cute in it! 

The pattern is the Baby Wrap Crossover Cardigan by Jigsawknits and the yarn is James C. Brett Kool Kotton.

Look what I made!

I've been a little busy recently and now I finally have time to catch my breath I can show off my latest FO.  I've been working on it for a while, but I finished it off in a 4 1/2 hour intensive session on 14th March, when it looked like this:

Yes, I am a mummy!  This is little Cassie Violet, who entered the world a couple of weeks early and in a major hurry.  I went to bed at midnight on the night in question, feeling perfectly fine and woke up 2 hours later in full blown labour.  After a trip in an ambulance I arrived at the Midwife Led Unit and was allowed to push and Cassie was born within an hour.  She is just wonderful!  She is very sweet tempered, sleeps well and has just enchanted everybody.  Here is a selection of my favourite pics of her so far.
