Bits and Bobs

I have been knitting lots of wee things lately as I am trying to use up my stash and only have one or two balls of each yarn.

Pram Blanket in Sirdar Supersoft Aran.

2 berets and a pair of pram shoes (which still need buttons) in Sirdar Snuggly Bubbly and plain Snuggly for the borders. Snuggly Bubbly takes a wee bit of effort to knit with initally but it is so soft once knitted it's worth it.

Hat in Twilleys Freedom Spirit

This is a cropped waistcoat in Sirdar Supersoft Aran/Confetti. Not overly pleased with this, it's fine from the back but the front is very blousy, even after blocking. It is meant to have a tied twisted cord at the front to fasten but DD used a badge she had lying about.
And finally, I completed a mini-clapotis a few months ago and finally got round to blocking it. It did lose a bit of clour in the process but I am afraid the washed-out effect on ths photo is more due to my camera technique!

Previous readers will know I have set myself the task of not buying anymore wool until I have lost 2 stone (28 pounds). Well, yesterday I hit my first target of losing half a stone (7 pounds) so I am a quarter of the way there!

What's the supersoft aran like to work with? I've got a pattern that uses it.
