Two coats...

...little and large. The large one (though still only a size 10, yay!) is my early birthday present from Ali - it caught my eye on the Toast website and when I went and tried it on in their Oxford shop last weekend, it lived up to all expectations. It's voluminous enough to cover the bump, hopefully even up to the full 9 months, and drapy and gorgeous enough to look fantastic after bump has become babe in arms and I can pretend to yummy mummy status.
The little one has been in the making for some time now - but I've only just got round to finishing it. A few errors crept in along the way and it was actually knitted for Archie originally but my tardiness in completing it has meant that it will become Chewie's when he/she is big enough (it's size 3-6 months). It just needs a few buttons and we're there.

Next up for a knitting project is the Central Park Hoodie, using Debbie Bliss Donegal Aran Tweed in a lovely dark brown colour - something for me for a change! With my current rate of progress it may or may not be done by the time I can fit into it ;0)

Hey Kathryn

Lovely to see you both today - you look wonderful! Meant to say that I loved that top you had on - gorgeous!

Dead shocked to see that your next project that you have planned is the Central Park Hoodie - likewise! I'm yet to buy the yarn for it though and need to improve my cable skills.

Hope you don't mind me hunting out your blog - was intrigued to find out you knit. And wanted to point you in the direction of the bags - the company is called Offhand Designs, if you want to have a look.

Hope you and bump (or should that be Chewie?) are well and have a lovely evening!
