Knitting piles

Blocking pile
Last week this pile started falling over. My big pile of knits finished and waiting to be blocked and buttons sewn on. A big pile of clothes the kids should really be wearing while they can before it gets too warm or they grow out of them.

A few hours later and some are now ready to be worn Granny's Favourite Cardigan
Pattern: Granny's Favourite (still needing buttons) for Bella
Yarn: Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 8ply in Bracken
Granny's Favourite Cardigan Granny's Favourite Cardigan Evie JumperPattern: Evie for Bella
Yarn: Nundle Woollen Mills Chaffey Evie Jumper All Over Eyelets
Pattern: All over Eyelets top for Eva
Yarn: Leftover single lonely ball of Bendigo Luxury 5ply
All Over Eyelets
I did modify this pattern to not have the rolling armholes and neck, instead I crocheted a scalloped edge and as always added length.Paulette Top Pattern: Paulette for Eva
Yarn: Patons Emotion 4ply

I must admit, after using this yarn on two different tops, while I LOVE the top pattern and the finished design, the yarn is not a favourite. Both tops were "fluffy" before I even washed them. Another version of this, perhaps in a Cashmerino would be lovely.Paulette Top
And that is half the pile done. The rest need buttons and one cardigan needs some serious blocking.
