2010 - FO No 11

Pattern:  Fairisle Lassie - Design B - Girl's Ballerina Cardie knitted in thistle
Started:  End of 2009  Finished:  29th May 2010
Yarn:  Sirdar Crofter DK - Color - Thistle (5 balls)
Size: 71/76 cms

I started this cardi/bolero last year and then put it aside to knit some other projects.  Last week when I was sick I decided to finish off some UFO's and this one was top of the pile.  It didnt take too long to knit up the sleeves and edging.  I omitted the tie at the side and put some press studs there instead as it is easier for Isabelle!  She wore it yesterday afternoon and was nice and warm.  It even matched her grey t-shirt perfectly.  Hopefully when the sun comes out I can grab another photo of her in the other FO.

I'm guessing it is knit in one piece - otherwise you are very clever to have matched the stripes so well!

Hey, now that's a FABULOUS eight-year-old-friendly (I'm thinking of someone in particular here) cardi wrap. Nice work, Mrs.
