I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas. We had or first Christmas at home in several years and it was really lovely. I’m feeling in need of some brisk walks and detox by now though! Our cold spell continued until the day after Christmas, complete with frozen pipes and afterwards cracked pump. Hopefully we’ll have our pump repaired in time for the next cold snap next week. Everything closes down for Christmas here in Ireland, so we will be lucky to get it welded by the end of the week.
We did take advantage of the Christmas snow to take some very pretty photos of my niece in her Iceling Cardigan. This version was knit using Babylonglegs Radiance Aran. She loved it so much that it was barely taken off while she was here! I’m putting a version of the pattern together for BabyLongLegs and she will be starting a KAL in January for anyone interested. As you can see from this version this cardigan style is short, however if you want to make it longer just make sure you have more yarn and knit to the length you need (you have to add a few more stitches to pick up along the front as well for the extra length). She is a good size 3 1/2 year old and I knit her the 25″ (4 year old) size.
