Finished and a photo that shows the lovely denim blue.
This is such a great little pattern. I'm looking forward to knitting another one and actually doing what the pattern says next time... #2018yearofthesweater #knittersofinstagram #babyknitting #cameroncardi #ravelrypattern #knittingforgreatbaby #greatauntiemoog

Good morning!

I have a surprising urge to do a major declutter of my sewing space but am trying to fight it with a spot of knitting.

A sweet summer cardi for my favourite girl baby in cool denim blue Drops cotton merino. Let's ignore the fact that I failed to read the pattern and have done those side panels wrong.

Great Baby won't mind and it gives me an excuse to knit another one. (Cameron Cardi by Loop Yarn on Ravelry.) Hope you have a smashing Saturday 🌞🌞 #procrastinationismysuperpower #knittingforgreatbaby #babyknitting #greatauntiemoog #greatbabymk1 #dropscottonmerino #woolwarehouse

Good morning!

I finally finished this tiny baby cardi last night and as soon as it's dry it'll be on its way to Great Baby Boy.

I was beginning to think he'd have started school before I finished it. Knitting has slowed down dramatically just lately. I blame summer.
Have a smashing Wednesday all xx

After panicking that a sweater and two sock WIPs, plus two unstarted baby cardigans, might not be enough for a whole week away I managed precisely an inch of sweater knitting on our journey north last weekend...and then didn't knit another stitch all week.

It was too hot in Scotland to knit!

I have catching up to do. Starting with a soft and tiny cardi for a special new boy baby.

We woke to a final glorious morning in Scotland with Loch Fyne as still as a millpond.

We were on the road by 7.30am and had several stops along the way finishing with an hour at Grandma's to pick up two very excited puppers.

En route I had the best kind of phone call from my brother telling me my other beautiful niece gave birth to my second Great Baby yesterday! A healthy, gorgeous baby boy πŸ’•πŸ’• After a very long but good day on the road we arrived home just after 8pm...to find the garden has burst into flower in the past 8 days! We also brought the sunshine home with us 🌞🌞 Thank you for coming on holiday with us. It's been fun sharing it with you πŸ’•πŸ’• #moogsdoscotland #myfavouriteplaceintheworld #strachur #lochfyne #greatbabymk2 #greatbabyboy #greatauntiemoog #ihaveknittingtodo

In approximately 24 hrs I will be cuddling the small person who I knit this for.

To say I'm excited is not even close!

Have a great Friday all!

I'm hoping for a miracle to get us all packed up and ready for 4.30pm to go on the first leg of the great journey north.
The second I'm in that car I.am.knitting!

I do love baby knits!

A summer cardi for Great Baby Girl. Started on Sunday. About to start the sleeves.
I bought three 50g skeins of this mad pink yarn years ago with no idea what I was going to use it for.
It's made from bamboo and pearls....yes, pearls...and is making the softest, silkiest little cardi ever 😍

Happy Tuesday all and thank you to everyone who left such lovely comments on my last post! This IG community really is a special place πŸ’•πŸ’• #igfriendsarethebest #babyknitting #knittingforgreatbaby #greatauntiemoog #greatbabymk1 #meredithcardi #ruthmaddockknitcrochetdesign #ravelrypattern #2018yearofthesweater #knittersofinstagram

It's a gorgeously sunny start to Sunday here and I'm planning to drink tea and sit in my pyjamas writing listings for tonight's shop update.

That won't make a very pretty photo so here's a finished thing instead. A corner to corner blanket for Great Baby Boy...due next month πŸ’•

Happy Sunday all and Happy Mother's Day to all my overseas IG friends if you're celebrating today 🌞🌞

I've suddenly realised that Great Baby mk2 will be born in just a few weeks and I haven't made a thing for him!

Thank goodness I had this corner to corner crochet blanket half done in my WIPs pile!

Using my best project bag πŸ˜‚ I might have to put in an order with myself.

The best of days.

Tried to sneak her out in my bag but her doting parents caught me.

How is it possible to love a tiny human this much ? 😍

#bestbabyintheworldever #cleverestbabyevertoo #moogmeetsgreatbaby #imaybeabitbiased #hernewcardiwasaperfectfit #greatauntiemoog

If I can't snuggle Great Baby today I'm going to knit her something for when I do....which will hopefully be Monday.

Better get cracking.

It's going to be a full day of editing photos and writing shop listings today but first, a few more rows on last night's cast on.

A new hoodie for Great Baby using some long stashed aran weight cashmerino. Soooo cuddly.

Happy Tuesday πŸ’•

The last of the Christmas knitting βœ”βœ” It's no coincidence that Great Baby's Christmas cardi matches my new walls. She'll be easy to hide if she visits πŸ’•πŸ’• #shesmine
Now I might just get on with my never ending grey Boxy sweater. *someone* thinks it might be possible to finish it before Christmas #deluded

Sunday morning peace and quiet.

I cast on a little cardi last night, for Great Niece's first Christmas. I love how quickly baby garments knit up.

This time next year I'll be knitting for two little people because my other beautiful newlywed niece is making me Great Baby mk.2!!! Hope you have a smashing day 😚 xxx

P.S. knitting bag update at 7pm today!

Good morning!

I was very productive during Bake Off and Bear Grylls Celebrity Island last night.

Cast on, knitted and cast off the body of a new hoodie for great baby niece.

The awesomeness that is knitting tiny clothes with worsted weight yarn on 5mm needles!

I have a morning of waiting in for deliveries, one of which must surely be that interfacing! This could well be finished by lunchtime.

Fabulous service from @woolwarehouse as always.

Apparently dark blue is great baby niece's colour and they adore the little hoodie and the Baby Vertebrae cardi I knit for her.

So.... #iwanttocastonrightnowbuticant #knittingforgreatbaby #greatauntiemoog #knitworthyniece #knittersofinstagram

Great Auntie Moog has knitting to do!! Great Baby Girl was born yesterday after a long and tricksy labour but all is good and mother and baby are doing well...and she is the most beautiful baby in the whole wide world πŸ’•πŸ’• Now on the search for the perfect pattern.

#greatauntiemoog #greatbabyishere #greatbabygirl #iseemtohavesomethinginmyeye

Seriously though, all grumbling aside, this really is a stonkingly brilliant pattern.

I opted to use vinyl for a few bits of the bag, including the outers of the handles.

No part of me believed I'd be able to turn these through but the little trick in the pattern worked like a charm.

I can't stop looking at them!

Friday morning chores are done and it's time to crack on.

I'm on page 12 of the 20 pages of instructions so nearly on the home stretch #eternaloptimist
The plan is to get #abagforgreatbaby finished this weekend. Or today.
Depends how soon the clock strikes "wine". #adventuretimebackpack #greatauntiemoog #greatbabyisnearlyhere #hurryupmoog

I've worked solidly on #abagforgreatbaby today and got this far. That's two day's work including the cutting out.

I still have straps to make. The back panel to make. Interior pockets and the lining to make and then I'll be able to put it together.

This is most definitely going to be a one off.
