Another finished garment, the type of knitting that we like around here at the moment.
Pattern: Cable from Sublime
Size: 6-7 years
Started: 2009 Finished: March 13
Yarn: Smoothie DK mint green, instead of Sublime cotton, 4.1 (100 gm) balls
I absolutely love this pattern. It turned out so nicely but I havent been able to get Isabelle to model it for me yet. She has been too busy she tells me. Now I have to say that I am not someone who likes knitting bobbles, but I found this bobble creation quite easy and fast to knit. I must remember that technique if I ever have another pattern with bobbles, to save time and they look great too. I didnt use the sublime cotton as it was too expensive for me ($14.00 a ball) so the Smoothie DK was a much better alternative and was already in my stash. I only used a tiny bit of the 5th ball so it was great, costing all up about $20.00 so you cant go wrong with that. I am hoping that Isabelle will wear this one a lot during winter, and hopefully not get any chocolate stains on it. She has had a habit lately of getting paint or food marks on her clothes that just wont come out no matter how hard I try which is quite frustrating as she only usually wears it once before it happens. Now some of those items of clothing are yard clothes, but I am hoping this wont become one of them. I am hoping to knit up something wonderful next so I am off to look through my new Sirdar book which has so many beautiful patterns in it, it makes me happy just looking through it.
