Little tikes

Little Tikes sweater, complete except for buttons. My colleague was thrilled with the results and gave it to her nephew for Christmas.

No time to blog...

...just a quick entry to show the completed Devan sweater - all pieces knit by machine on Sunday, November 30. Pieced and finished by today! That has to be a record! I love the colourway on this yarn (fortissimo??? can't remember - but the info is on Ravelry). Unfortunately, I knew I was going to be very tight with the amount of yarn, and so I didn't attempt to match the striping. The yarn is tweedy as much as stripy, so the effect is not awful, but probably would have been even nicer if I had had enough yarn to do the proper matching. Lovely result for my beautiful great-nephew.
