Christmas Knit List 4 - Salvation Army Cardigan

The working week is slowly coming to an end and I for one am very much looking forward to the weekend! After a bit more work than usual, a virus that has swept through the family and a really windy night last night, we're all battling tiredness and the urge to just spend every waking moment in bed.

Due to these little niggles, the Christmas knitting has not progressed quite as fast as hoped. I haven't got to my last couple of items for the Christmas wreath but have finished the Chloe Cardigan for the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal. I did this one in a dark teal/blossom pink combination (Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 8ply) which looks quite nice - topped off with a floral button from Jodulbug Creations. It's going to be dropped off at work tomorrow!

Then of course, Little B required a blanket for Lola, his soft toy cheetah, as apparently she got cold last night in the stormy weather! He insisted we go through his wool stash...yes, both boys have their wool stash and we found a green yarn that is apparently Lola's favourite colour. This yarn addiction of mine must be rubbing off on the boys! So, at lunch time today, a garter stitch blanket was produced for Lola. She should be nice and snug tonight!
