Finished the Pink Baby Cardy


I finished the knitting part of the cardy yesterday morning and did the embroidery part today.  The buttons are a bit too big, to be honest, but they can be squeezed through the buttonholes eventually!!  I sewed them on with yellow pearl #5 thread in order to make a flower centre look.

Here's a close-up of the embroidered part.


The frustrating part now is that I had worked hard to get it done in time to take to my dentist tomorrow morning when I was to go for the second part of a treatment needing two sessions.  I got a call this morning to say she'd actually had the baby over the weekend (so I daresay a 0-3 months size would have been OK!!) and, not only does my poor tooth have to wait another fortnight to be sorted out fully (owww!), but I don't know how I'm meant to get the cardy to new mum!  I plan to drop it in at the surgery tomorrow and ask any of her colleagues who are going to visit to take it with them....

Your poor teeth!

The yellow stitching for the daisy centres is a great idea!

Lovely. Especially the daisies growing up it.

I love the embroidery, and those gorgeous buttons. And at least since you made a generous size, getting it to her on Day 1 shouldn't matter too much :)
