I loved knitting this pattern and after looking at all the wonderful ones on Ravelry I couldnt wait any longer to make one for my nephew's 6th birthday. It will be a bit big on him but he is a lot shorter than Isabelle. It is hard to believe that there is only 7 months between them although Thomas is a very smart boy. I really do hope that he likes it. It seems my camera does not love red (which always annoys me to no end) so the pattern does not show up very well in the photo. I did try and take some other photos of it but my assistant kept putting her paws in the shot and trying to snuggle on the sweater so I had to quickly hang it on my bedroom door and hope for the best. I really love the way the pattern shows on the sweater and even the reverse square on the sleeves too.
Now I have some other new knitting which I started last night, as it seems all the pregnant people I know have been having GIRLS!!!! Lachlan's best friend's mum had a girl FELICITY on Valentine's Day. She will be so spoilt when she's older on her birthday. She is absolutely gorgeous so I am making her something to wear, Daisy from Simply Baby. I have completed the back and one front. I am also making something for KATE which I do hope she will like too. No sneak peeks as yet though. I am hoping to get quite a bit of knitting done as Monday is a public holiday so the kids can hopefully have a sleep in. The last few mornings they havent wanted to get out of bed which is unusual for them. Perhaps that bug they had wore them out a bit. We are also making our special dinner tonight, as on Paul's birthday we were a bit busy so we will celebrate tonight instead. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and thank you all too for Paul's birthday wishes.
