Cardigan for Lily

Lily's cardigan
Lily's favourite colour is yellow, mine is red according to her, mummies is purple and daddies is blue. Grandma was asked to knit her a yellow cardigan - the wool in Patons Bluebell and most of it is over 30 years old. Only the darker yellow was bought new as I was unsure I had enough to get a whole cardigan out of what was left from other projects. The actual knitting of cardigan was finished and given to her on Thursday, we just had to pick the buttons which we did yesterday and I sewed them on last night. Lily is off to her first movie in a cinema today Cars 2 and uncle Chris is going too so when they come and pick him up I can hand her back her cardigan.
The next project is to make her the Make it Perfect, Little Uptown Girl jacket that we bought the pattern and fabric for at the quilt show.
spotty buttons that Lily picked
Postscript; I used the leftover wool and made her a scarf to go with this
