is finally finished! Yay.
Book: Adorable Knits for Tiny Tots by Zoe Mellor.
Size is 3-4 years. I shortened the length by about 8 rows as it was very long.
Yarn: Heirloom Cotton 8 ply in yellow, lime and blue. I used 1 ball of each color for the lime and yellow and about 5 balls of the blue. I still had some leftover from the lime and yellow too. I still do not like doing intarsia. I think if the photo was closer it would show up a few faulty stitches that I do not like looking at, but I am not going to fix them either since they are on the edge of the star, and if I looked really closely at the front picture on the book I see that their stitches look a little wonky too. I think it is just the cotton. The colors are pretty accurate in this picture. Overall an easy knit, apart from doing the star picture. I would even make this jumper without the star picture on it. It does look quite cute.
I also bought some sock yarn called Wildefoote Handpainted Yarn in the color Rhapsody. I have taken some photos along with the book called Knitting Socks on the Road. It has some really nice patterns in it. I will try to post those pictures tomorrow since Blogger was not co-operating in posting them today. I have nearly finished the second birthday scarf, and the first one is going to be gifted this afternoon. 3 hours to go, since Isabelle is waiting very impatiently to go. How do you explain to a 4 yr old that they have to wait that long. Well hope that you all have a nice day.
