Rose tea leaves

Well, what a rubbish week. I completely failed the kids clothes week challenge. I got fabric out and played with it, looked through pattern books, got some vilene to trace and cut out a pattern but never actually got the machine out. My family is on the cusp of a new journey, so there is an awful lot going on behind the scenes, hence blogging silence.

I did, however, finish the Tiny Tea Leaves cardigan yesterday. It’s been waiting for buttons for about 6 weeks…….so I finally made some yesterday. I have had this rose pink soy silk yarn since I was first pregnant with my daughter and have been waiting for the right pattern to come along.

I think I only used just over a ball of it in the end, having agonised over long or short sleeves. I decided on the shorter version and she loves it. It is so soft and will be very comfortable to wear in warmer weather. The drape is perfect for the pattern and it will probably block and stretch more after washing. You think I could’ve brushed her hair for the photos?!
