Oscar blanket - with hearts

My colleague Lucy has just had her first baby - Oscar - congratulations Lucy and Martyn. This is a small blanket for the gorgeous O and I hope he likes it!
I was a bit carried away so also made some little felted hearts - Mummy, Daddy and baby size.... I've no idea what they will do with them!

Two Tone Shrug

Here's the latest shrug from my needles - a Christmas present for Mum. It's Stephanie Japel's shrug from 'Fitted Knits'. My first attempt at 'top down' knitting and it's so easy. I used one colour, rather than two as the pattern suggests and instead added some gauzy kid silk haze to the edges for a delicate look.
I'm really pleased with it and Mum is too. More pics on Ravelry.
