Finished...

I forget that knitting a birthday jumper for a 6-year-old is actually a reasonable-sized undertaking... so I left it way too late, and got sidetracked by an Unbloggable Project, and was still sewing in ends at at 1:30 this morning. But at lunchtime I finished sewing, and made the neckband, and this evening neckband and buttons were sewn on; and if we can co-ordinate, it'll get to the birthday girl on The Day, tomorrow...


I wish I'd had time to wash this - stranded stuff (I wrongly labelled this as intarsia last time, but actually it's more Fair-Isle) usually 'sits' better after a wash. But it's not as if it's going to be worn more than a couple of times before washing, anyway...

It's been a hell of a week at work, so a Nice Bright Finished Object with matching card is a cheery finishing note... full speed into the weekend now!

It's an elementary mistake ... You clearly forgot that pastel pink is the only officially endorsed colour for the clothes of girls under 8 years old. ;-) It looks fab.

I hope to post new crochet content to my neglected blog in a soon time!

Terrific Liz. I am sure the child will love it.
