Knitted Tablecloth and Baby Clothes


Well so far its been fine and I have got some washing dry,  does not look good for the rest of the week though.  I also managed to plant some bedding plants out in the garden.

As you can see I have been busy,  this cloth has taken many hours of knitting,  at times its been sitting looking at me,  as I just got fed up with it,  but its finished.

Its knitted from a vintage German pattern,  in white cotton,  which can be machine washed,   I have put it in my Esty shop this afternoon.    I hope you like it,   it measures 37 inches or 94 cms circular and was knitted on no 12 needles and number 12 circular needle.    I have no idea how many hours it took me but I am glad its finished.

This is also something new for my Esty shop,   this is a baby Matinee coat,  bonnet and booties all knitted in white double knitting wool.  This is a vintage pattern,  which I have knitted lots of times and everyone seems to like.   The size I made is for an 18 inches or 45.5 cm chest or new born baby.

I hope you like these new items,  when the shops open on Wednesday I have to go and buy a new colour ink for my printer,  I forgot that it ran out before we went on holiday so until I do I cant do the Sunday Cd challenge card.  I am still thinking of ideas for it this week.

Until we meet again I hope you are enjoying this long weekend and the Diamond Jubilee celebrations,   I am waiting to watch the show tonight and see Elton John on the stage,   sorry Vernon will have to suffer tonight as hes a country and western fan.   I would love to Elton John live,  I used to have his Mother and Father come in my shop years ago and his Nan and Aunt although I did not know it at the time and found out some years later.
Take care
