Yarn along (2.5)

I can't really join in properly this week, as our world is in a bit of turmoil with packing, decluttering and generally flapping around like scared chickens.  I will share this FO with you.  The beautiful Erin is wearing her grandma-made bronze cardigan.  How lovely she is... sigh.
And I am still wandering around with Pooh and Piglet for now, searching for calm - and sometimes finding it too!

  2. Isn't she just soooo beautiful! And I love the cardi-especially the color.
    I cannot join in this week either as I too am trying to pack etc. and have no time for crochet.
    I hope things are going well, even if hectic, and will send you some good mojo for peace!

  5. Both the sweater and Erin are gorgeous! Congratulations on the rapid sale of your house, bittersweet though I'm sure it is.

  7. The cardi is lovely but I'm afraid it is overshadowed by the beautiful wearer....

  8. Little Erin looks very, very cosy!! It's a great gift to have a knitting grandma. My Nanna knitted me loads of jumpers throughout my childhood, sadly only one of them remains, but I can remember choosing the wool and pattern with her and being measured every time I passed the room. My Nanna is long gone, sadly, but I adore that last cardigan that she knitted for me, it's the first thing I reach for when in need of something comforting to wear and always reminds me of her and the love she must have had for me. xxxxxx

  14. What a beautiful cardi and an even more perfect baby, she is lovely!
    So much luck to you with your move. I really hope it all goes smoothly and isn't too tiring. Moving is always a bit bittersweet, even homes I have been glad to leave have still left me feeling a bit sad. Take lots of care of yourself!
