It’s getting cold! It’s time I start this again.

After months of idleness and procrastination this is finally finished!

I’m really happy with the result. I wanted it a bit big so that, with some luck, it could be used for 2 winters rather than just 5 minutes, which is how long most clothes seem to fit him for at the moment!

The only mod is that I didn’t do the sleeve decreases as they looked like they would be too tight.

Excuse the poor photography. Light is atrocious here this time of year.


I messed up the size completely (my fault entirely, not the pattern’s) and will have to re-knit. I’ll take my time now, because it’s boiling here!

This is such a cute pattern! I had to start straight away, even though (I hope) Indi won’t need it for a while.

I wanted to dye the yarn a colour that suit him and I think green is the best colour on him, he looks gorgeous! I wanted a little bit of variegation to add interest, but not too much that would clash with the texture of the pattern. It turned out just as I had envisaged, and I’m really pleased with how it’s knitting up.
