Finished test knits

Over August and September I finished a few more test knits for Kelly Brooker of PekaPeka designs.

Continuing the economy of stash theme seen with Conscious pattern were patterns for two vests and a cardigan.

First up Efficient.
Size: 55 cm/ 3y
Yarn: Main colour - Debbie Bliss Rialto DK prints in Pisa  170 m/ 81 g
contrast colour - Debbie Bliss Rialto DK in Fuschia 84 m/ 40 g.

And the last pattern in the collection is Worthy
Size: 55 cm/ 3 y (with extra length for Mr A)
Yarn: Main colour - Malabrigo Rios in Solis  157 m/ 82 g
contrast colour - Bumblebirch Forage in Rosemary 77 m/ 38 g.

Next Thrifty
Size: 40 cm/ 0-3 months (this is for our newest addition, Mr C, who arrived at the end of September - proper modelled shots to comw)
Yarn: Main colour - Debbie Bliss Rialto DK  in cream 163 m/ 77 g
contrast colour -  Debbie Bliss Rialto DK in grey 55 m/ 26 g.

The last test knit is a cropped cardigan October Opal, perfect for over dresses.
Size: 55 cm/ 3 y
Yarn: Main colour - Malabrigo Arroyo in Borrajas 245 m/ 80 g

As always the patterns were wonderfully written with very clear instructions. They're also written for 16 sizes, newborn to 10 y (35 to 72.5 cm chest), so they'll get plenty of use with growing children!

With the addition of Mr C to our own brood almost two weeks ago I'm being kept busy but watch this space there will be a few pattern releases in the next couple if months!
