Tempted by a sweater

I got five balls of DB Cashmerino Aran in a beautiful teal colour for Christmas and have cast on 144 stitches to start my first sweater. I've decided to go with the simple Tempting from Knitty.

I only knit two Christmas gifts this year. A 2x2 rib scarf with a hole in it for my Mum and a toy for Moustache. The toy pattern comes from here and was a super simple knit.

It's not the cutest toy in the world, but Moustie seems to love it.

I also just finished a second cabled baby hat in blue for Lise's baby. I still like the pink one better, only because I LOVE the coral pink colour. But little boys don't wear pink, so Baby Blake will receive the blue one. The pink one still doesn't have a home. Aw.
