Baby Knitted Cardigan and Double 4 Patch Progress

After I finished my shawl, I started knitting a little cardigan for my grandson. I found the pattern in a vintage catalogue from my mother. I already used several patterns from this catalogue for my own children about 35 years ago. I love to knit cable stitch, it's so easy and gives an impressive result. The yarn is baby alpaga.

Most of the time I knit very early in the morning together with drinking my tea. Then comes coffee time and quilting... well, in between a little housework! 

I am finishing the last six blocks of my Double Four Patch top. After this, I will prepare the tutorial as promised!

  24. I like the sweater, the wool looks super soft.
    And what a lovely quilt, I started a hexagon quilt almost two years ago, but I've been ignoring it for a while now. I must get it finished, I do enjoy adding to it but it feels like very slow progress
