I managed to knit one side of the border on this scrappy handspun blanket, BUT
so I am going to cast on for this dear little sleeping suit tonight. The pattern is in the magazine "Yarn" and is knitted in a possum/merino/silk mix.
I am not going to add on the ears though...they are cute, but I think it will look better without. What do you think?

We had a power cut in the middle of the afternoon, ( just when I wanted to turn the heat up again, and was longing for a cup of tea), but it gave me some respite and a chance to snatch a few rows of knitting.
Talking of which, I finished this shawl the other day.
This was my knitting project for the car, I started it last year when we drove up to the North Island in March.
I found the pattern on Ravelry. It is just a simple increase each end, and in the middle alternate rows, I have used two balls of Noro Sock yarn, alternating them with garter stitch and stocking stitch.
