2010 - FO No. 15


Pattern:  Little Frou Frou from Sublime 4 Ply Book No 616
Size:  6 months
Yarn:  BWM Melody, about 3 balls
Started:  Thursday 16th June and finished today

I thought I would take a little break from the second elephant after attempting to knit his ears and doing them wrong 3 times.  I finally got them right after trying again the next day but in the meantime I started this as a little stashbuster/gift item.  It only took 3 days to knit up and today was spent seaming it together.  I think it is rather quite cute and perfect for summer over a little dress or a long sleeve t-shirt if it gets too chilly.  There is a version with the longer sleeves too.  I think all the cold weather we are having is just perfect for settting the mood to knit a lot lately so I hope to get a lot more done.  Happy knitting!!

It is great when you can stash bust a bit of yarn and do it in a couple of days. It is very pretty.

This little sweater is precious. I really like the short sleeves on it. It is sometimes better to put something down when it isn't working and come back to it. This little diversion seems perfect!
