a nice simple pattern, which I followed carefully except a bit of a mistake at the neck.
As a result, I ended up having to unravel and re-knit the neck (grrrr!). I am proud to report that this led to me finally learning how to successfully unravel knitting without dropping stitches. So now if I make a mistake I don't have to return to the very beginning of a project any more (this is MAJOR progress for me!!!!).
I am kicking myself that I didn't add some extra length to the body as its a wee bit on the short side, but I didn't have the confidence to muck around with the pattern on my first major knitting project.
|Please excuse the birdsnest hair! I didn't have the energy for that fight!|
I am proud to say that it does actually fits Rascal (just!) and she LOVES it!
I think that I have caught the knitting bug... I'm busy browsing for more wool (in the sales of course) and new patterns to try. My children certainly won't be cold next winter!!!
