FO Friday: Red Riding Hood






It's finished! The duffle coat from Debbie Bliss' Ultimate Book of Baby Knits, was finally finished on new year's day. It's a lovely coat and a great fit for Evie. I made the 3-6 month size and it does have a bit of room to grow into. The knitting (all garter stitch) was very straight forward, unfortunately my making up needs a bit of work - but I won't let this put me off. The yarn used - Debbie Bliss Rialto DK - is lovely and soft and I love the colour. Plus I have 1 and a half left over balls of yarn, so may make a hat.

I am  so pleased with this. I love the hood and cute little pockets, and will most likely make it in the next size up. (I would love to try and scale it up for me, but I think that's a bit beyond my skillset at the moment.)

Now off to Tami's blog to see what everyone else has been up to...

Oh my gosh, that picture! Extreme adorability. And gorgeous knitting, too, I love the red and the style/drape of the hood and those buttons. :)

Thanks all. She is a bit awesome, isn't she? ;) The coat is really lovely, and she does wear it a lot. I just wish that my sewing skills were better to give it the finish it deserves.
