Andrea the red nosed knitter

Hello Blogettes. I hope you are all well and busy crafting.
I've been a little under the weather this week as I have a little cold but am on the road to feeling better now thankfully. Although I do look a little like rudolph the red nose reindeer at the moment which is not great at this time of year, think I'm a few months late for the red nose look lol.
I finished some more knitting this week, another little baby cardigan for Eilys grandaughter. Its made with sirdar calico yarn which is a cotton acrylic mix in a pretty colour but I can't think what colour to call it, ...peach... coral... salmon..... it's pretty, but hard to describe lol. 
I also found a pattern for a little knitted teddy online yesterday and just fancied having a go so I got some spare wool and needles out in the afternoon and made one. Its only a basic very easy shape teddy but I'm quite pleased with it as it was easy and fun to knit, I may even end up making more.

Peach..coral ...salmon??? cardi

Rainbow teddy


  1. Love this colour set, really pretty. It would clash with your nose tho. Dave has had a bad cold too, and now has that horrid rough cough bit. I've got my fingers crossed I don't get it, cause last time I caught it from him I had it pretty bad, but so far.........okay. Love that little teddy too. Eilly's expected grand-daughter is sure going to look the bees knees with all these gorgeous knits you both are making, lucky little cherub.

  2. I love the cardigan andie and the little teddy, they will be appreciated. Have a lovely weekend. Julie.C

  3. Great makes as usual Andie..!! The cardi & teddy will be perfect for Eil's new grand-daughter!!
    Hope your cold goes away soon.
    Take care,
    Jo. xx

  4. Lovely work Andie, I especially like the Teddy. Sue x
