Blue Girl Shrug
There has been a flurry of casting off lately and first cab off the rank was mon petit poppet's blue shrug. I used a gorgeous pale blue Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran and the shrug pattern from the Simply Baby book by Debbie Bliss. I did a whisker of maths and extended the sleeves by a few centimetres as my little love is long and lean.
It was my first attempt at seaming since this little wee cardigan and I can proudly say I've finally got it! Twas a super squishy knit to make and flew off the needles (pity it then sat in my basket for an age waiting for the ends to be woven in!). I simply couldn't help myself and set up these piccies almost the same way as when I photographed Bijou wearing her last cardi.
The cheeks have fined down a little... the limbs are much longer....
The love of my jewelry box had not waned....nor has the length of those eyelashes....
And me? I'm as smitten as ever with my gorgeous blue girl. So much love.
