I really loved knitting this for Isabelle but I did forget my golden rule, add 10 extra rows to the body of the sweater as Isabelle has a long torso. The sleeves have a bit of extra length to them, and I did knit about 2 cms shorter than stated. I am not going to rip it back though to add the extra rows to the body so I am hoping that she wont grow too much taller in the next couple of months. She did intend to wear it all day today, but apparently the breakfast of egg found its way onto her sweater so now it has been washed and is drying on a towel in the laundry. She will have to wait until the weekend now to wear it again. The yarn is great too as she didnt even wear anything under it, and said it felt nice and comfy.
I would also love to thank you all for the wonderful comments left by all you lovely ladies on Florence. It really made my day to know that so many people appreciated my knitting!
