I’m hoping this is a quick-knit as I don’t have much time!

1/5/12 - this was 2nd on my queue but the cold snap has meant that I need to knit this up now for my little fella. I am still working on Tea Leaves, but as I am on the home stretch (2nd sleeve and buttonholes to go) I thought I would mix it up a bit. Toying with idea of adding a strip across the front in perhaps grey, orange and white.

9/7/12 - despite the urgency, I only finished it today! I didn’t do the shoulder seams properly- pulled the mattress stitches too tight and therefore the armhole stitches are too many making the armholes turn up. Not bothering to unravel and re-do (lazy knitter!). Went with grey, yellow and white for stripe.
