Everything is better with added sparkles. We went to an evening party and baby Isla needed something glam. It was a good excuse to dig around in my yarn stash, especially as Graeme has been threatening to throw out all of my yarn unless some of it disappears.
I found some teal sparkly yarn in my stash (I bought this to knit up a bolero in my size but never got around to it) and chose one of my favourite baby-sized knits: The Whirligig Shrug. It's a fun and quick knit which takes about two nights of knitting while watching NCIS (or other TV drama of your preference). The TV bit is essential, obviously.

Here's the baba posing with dad in her shrug with a rather large ice cream sweetie. Aw. Thank goodness for mobile phone cameras.
