@clothmama
That's my aim!! I definitely going to knit more things for me this year. I've got some two at a time- toe up socks on the needles at the moment!!

The baby hats and booties were a very quick knit.
Each of them has only taken I evening each.

Everything is beautiful :love: :love: . That is a lot of knitting for January. It would take me all year to do one of those. I knit very slowly!

And what weight did you use? I have some MM Colibri that would look gorgeous but it's sock weight...

@gilbertandmartha It's Manos de Uruguay silk blend - the colourway is called wildflowers!


@sim. It's dk weight but would work with any weight yarn because you just keep going until you reach the end of the skein and change your needle size. It would be gorgeous in sock yarn! It's actually a pattern for worsted :)
It shows off a colourway beautifully
