Knitting Adventures … Toddler Cardigans …

_MG_5127-1Hey everyone … so yesterday was Mina & Franka’s 2nd Birthday … eek … honestly cant believe they are growing up so fast … this post was actually supposed to go up yesterday and today was supposed to be my Monday Links … but a lot happened yesterday so this is happening now …

_MG_5118-1For the girls birthday this year I made them a couple of short sleeve cardigans … figured these would be quite useful at the malls or at restaurants etc where it can get a little chilly during with all the AC …

_MG_5115-1It was really fun making these and one of the very few times I make two of the same pattern …

_MG_5120-1I ended up using this PATTERN … I loved the pretty little eyelet details and the garter stitch borders …

The all in one design also appealed to me … its nice getting to the end of a piece and not having to go back to finish off sleeves …

Anyway I took them round last week when I went to see Stef and the girls … and gave them their birthday presents a little early …

Even though they are a little big for them at the moment (gives them room to grow) they did absolutely love them …

Stef tried them off them at one point which didn’t go down too well … they both insisted on wearing them all afternoon until bed time …

Well I have to say I was very pleased they were happy with them and hopefully they will get plenty of wear out of them before they grow to big to fit them anymore …

That is it for this post …

Till next time …
