2011 - FO No 16


Pattern:  School Cardi by Tikki
Yarn:  Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 2 x 200gm balls, color - Sweetpea
Size:  12 years
Needle size:  4mm

This pattern was so lovely when I saw it on Tikki's blog that I immediately put my hand up for test knitting it so that Isabelle would have a lovely cardigan to wear.  I had originally knit the sleeves a bit shorter than called for in the pattern but then decided once Isabelle had worn it to do the correct length.  I love how this turned out and the wool softened up nicely after it was soaked for a bit.  I am still not a huge fan of the crepey look of the wool though and I think I would use another yarn next time. 

Isabelle couldnt see properly in the last photo as the sun is out today and shining brightly so she was squinting a bit.  I will have another FO during the week as I had to get Isabelle to model both or otherwise she wouldnt have done it later on, so the next one has an end or two hanging out but I will weave them in today.  I hope your all enjoying your weekend!

Isn't it funny how kids do that in photos - I can think of several photos of myself or my sister like that!
