Got the blues – Made by Ma!

Oh, could my post titles be any cornier?

Ma has been busy with the needles again, so here are the last couple of knits for the kids for a while.  They are all set up for the summer…it being England, and all!  Not renowned for it’s glorious sunshine and soaring temperatures! You’ll see what I mean with these pictures…it was grey and rainy yesterday…and it shows!


You’ll probably recognise this pattern from last year. It’s Little Montoya from Kate Jackson Knits. Button had rapidly outgrown her cream version and it’s too pretty a pattern not to revisit.

IMG_8030_edited-1The Boy also has a sweater in the same yarn, Hayfield Bonus Aran.


I suspect this pattern is from the Jolly Beachcomber book.  I suspect Ma will comment if it’s not.

IMG_8039_edited-1I had the Devil’s own job getting these photos yesterday…they were both full of beans.

    Adorable mini-Pendles photo shoot! That is gorgeous yarn and your Ma has made up another couple of beautiful knits. Grey days do make for prime photo lighting… And since it’s going to be 95F/35C here today, and I have to be outside, I would happily take your rainy overcast weather!

    • Thank you! Ma is a marvel and a speedy knitter too. 35C would just about finish me off. I actually prefer the cooler weather, I just wish it would stop raining. We had roads closed last week due to flooding. It’s just crazy!

    It wasn’t the nicest of days yesterday, their new jumpers would have been needed just to keep warm. Boy’s eye seems to be healing well

    • The jumpers were definitely put to good use yesterday! His eye is coming along nicely, thank goodness. He is remarkably sanguine about the whole thing…even the eyedrops 4x a day.

    Adorbs, as always! How is your son after his op? (Apparently very well…) Has his check up yielded any indicators that the surgery was successful?

  4. Beautiful and I love that colour – seaside blue!
