A Bit of Knitting!

I’ve not posted for a while but i have good reasons!! I have been very determined to finish off a knitted jumper for my little Harry.

I picked this pattern from ravelry as it was meant to be dead easy and knitted in one piece in garter stitch which is perfect for a knitter like me (i’m more of a crochet person…the using two needles thing still throws me!)

So being the easy jumper that it was, naturally meant that other things had to go wrong like running out of wool and then said wool  being discontinued and then trying to find matching wool which didn’t really work so then having to find a way to pass it off as “its meant to look like this…honest.” *breathe…*

So yes.. The easy jumper in all its glory is here:

See what i did with the fake stitching down the side..it marks the colour change in the wool and sort of makes it into “yes i was meant to do that.” At least that was the idea.

Its gone into my “it will do” pile and i guess the little mouse makes it look cute and my little bear WILL be wearing it tomorrow just to say he got some use out of it!!

I can’t wait to share my next project with you whih i was meant to start 6 months ago.. Slowly working my way through my “things to make” list!

  1. I’m sure your son will look very cute in the jumper. A clever idea about the fake stitching-it really does look like it’s meant to be 2 different colours. Well done-it’s the best feeling making something for your child isn’t it.
