As good as it gets!

The knitty thing is done and blocked. 
The little girlie tried it on and loved it.
I whipped out my camera for a shot.
And she didn't want to play!
So this is as good as it gets for a modelled peek at the new cardi:

And to continue a them I couldn't get a decent shot of it off the girlie either:

So yes, it's snuggly and cosy, and bright and cheerful, and fits well and has a cute little hoodie, but you're just going to have to take my word for it!

The pattern is loosely adapted from the cardi I made Sophie just the other day. This time it's for a 2 year old teensy girl so a lot more snuggly. And smaller too. 
This time with an added hood.
And buttons to the very bottom to keep my little miss extra warm.

Technical details:
Yarn - Sirdar Click aran
Shade - 0110
Amount - just over 3x 50g skeins
Cost - £1.39 per skein, so £5.56 in total with  about 25g left over.
Needle size - 4mm and 5mm
Pattern - sizing taken from the pattern for the previous cardi, Sirdar 2275, but with the left and right fronts and the hood made up as I went along. I made a few notes so I guess I could write it up at some point.........

So that's about it with the bargain Sirdar Click. Well apart from the 11 skeins I have left to knit up a cardi for Emma....... Hmm, maybe later, I think the Granny Stripe is feeling a little neglected. And besides, I have an idea for a new blanket I want to start on.........

I always find it so difficult to envisage how a yarn will look when knitted up. That looks fantastic! Will have to keep an eye out for some bargain yarn ( although I really should be spinning my own!)

I have about 20 balls of Sirdar Click, it is lovely yarn. This little Hoodie is so cute, I bet she will have lots and lots of wear out of it. Great Job :) I love the photographs too.

What a cute hoodie on your granddaughter. I like how the yarn knit up too, very pretty. Thanks for your comment too, it is very hard to deal with financial things isnt it.

I've got some of that yarn, making something out of it is on my to-do list!! Your little jacket looks lovely :)
