FO No. 16


The Hooded Guernsey is complete! Yay for me. I am glad this done as I was actually getting sick of knitting the hood and it seemed to take me ages to finish it off. The sleeves were quick though, so that was a nice finish.
Pattern: Hooded Guernsey from Special Family Knits by Debbie Bliss
Size - 2 years which is a 71cm chest size so it should fit quite easily.
Yarn: I substituted cotton for 8 ply wool, (8 balls) but the cotton would probably have been better in the way it sits at the bottom. The 8 ply makes the bottom edging curl up a bit. I would still knit it again but probably in cotton next time.
Tomorrow I should have some new projects to show you. Sadly today I did not make it to Sunspun as we ran out of time. Paul's job took a bit longer than we thought, so maybe next time I will make it there. Thank you too for all your wonderful comments too, and sorry I havent had time to get back to you, but my email plays up sometimes, so I dont know whether the ones I reply to actually make it to their destination or not. Wait and see I suppose. Happy knitting!

This is lovely, such a lovely bright colour and such a useful knit. I remember knitting a hooded top once and being astounded by how long the hood took.
