A couple of finishes

I have recently returned to a few old guilty projects that needed finishing, as well as starting a few new bit. I decided there was a few things that I really liked that were just sat 2/3rds from a time when I lost my crafty swing. Big things that I actually really wanted to finish, so first finish is the hoody for my husband. We had a bit of an issue with this regarding dye lots, but I managed to find a match, and here it is.

Another old project I have been working on is a grey cabled jumper for me, hopefully I will have a picture I can put up within the month. Just a sleeve and a half, and the sewing up to do.
As for new projects I did a lovely little cardigan for my new niece.  Modelled here by the lovely big ted.

 It was a lovely quick little cardigan to do, and it used less then 50grams for the 0-6 month size.
I also have started a new rainbow dress for my older niece, I had to change the pattern as it only goes up to age 2 and she is 5, but hopefully it should work out ok. I'm not looking forward to sewing in those ends though!

Anyway it has been a busy summer, quite a bit of it in the tent. We have found some lovely little places to visit and fun things to do. I may do a summer holiday post soon with pictures full of bubbles, adventure playgrounds, beaches and all the places we have visited, but for now it is time to go.
