knitting and the life I almost have around it

i wish i were size 6-12 months...

just a quick post to say "lookit!!" baby things are so quick, its awesome! i still have to weave in the ends and find some appropriate buttons for the placket but really? its finished. its actually a really good pattern, totally seamless. you knit the body on circs to the armpit, then you knit the sleeves on dpns to the arm pit. you graft those together and then knit the raglan shaping, turn to knitting rows for the placket and do the collar. it's a bit fiddly but.. wow! no making up at all! and i'm charmed by the little vine running around the tummy...

ciao!

    That is a beautiful little jumper - the viney thing is just perfect!

    But honestly, you don't want to be that small again do you? Learning to walk again, nappies, annoying siblings...?

    I think the simpler solution is to scale it up and make one that's YOU sized :)

    Sweet and no sewing up - the perfect garment. Clever you to add the Fair Isle.

    That is a beautiful little jumper for a lucky baby - the pattern sounds great too.
