Flower Cardian

I have a new cousin. Well I think she is a cousin!
She is my Mum's, cousin's granddaughter.

What ever she turns out to be on our complicated family tree, Eleanor Faye will be much loved and receive lots of attention.

I will be going to see her for the first time on Friday and I am taking along this little cardigan that I have made for her.

I love to knit and this was a joy to do.
I haven't done a picot edge before so enjoyed that but, my favourite part was knitting the little flowers. I added antique mother of pearl buttons.

Of course such a pretty confection needs to have a partner so I bought a pair of denim dungarees for Eleanor to wear too ;0)
