is finally finished.
Pattern: Central Park Hoodie
Yarn: Bendigo Woollen Mills yarn - Rustic in Dusty Blue, used about 17 balls.
I sat up last night sewing on the toggle buttons. I did not do any buttonholes, I just pushed the toggle buttons through the bands, and they fitted through perfectly. I was going to crochet some small loops but my skills at crochet have never been any good and I proved it last night. I will have to try it on later and make sure that it fits. It does look on the small side though, so if it doesnt fit me my sister will get to wear a new oversized jacket next Winter won't she. I am so glad that it is now finished, and I dont have any plans to knit another one, too many other things on my "to-do" list. By the way, I could not resist the yarn that Karin sent to me, and have cast on for a new pair of socks - for me. I will take a picture when I have done a bit more of the pattern, and hopefully it will look okay. I have never really knit anything other than ribbed or plain socks, apart from the pink ones I made for Isabelle back in April/May. I am looking forward to knitting these up though, and I will tell you which pattern later on. We have a wedding to attend tomorrow. Paul got an invite a few weeks back, but went out on a boy's night and lost the invite. He called this week to find out when it was on, and of course its tomorrow at 1:00. I love going to weddings, just hate having to think about what to wear to it. It would be good if my tummy was a lot smaller, must try and do those sit ups I keep thinking about. Pity knitting doesnt make you lose weight, I would be a lot skinnier now!
