Finishing Friday #2
Another triumphant FO this week. My Dinosaur sweater is done. The pattern is from Simply Knit magazine November 2011.
I am really pleased with the results, especially the colours. The yarn is Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino and I really do love working with it.
This sweater represented a lot of firsts for me. The first time I have attempted colour work and reading a graph. Both of which are easier that you might think. It is also my first jumper and I did struggle to understand how the neck work. There are mistakes and people may be able to spot them, but for me it was a great learning experience and I will definitely do it again!
This is one is on it’s way to a very dear friend, whom I know will appreciate it. I just hope the recipient isn’t too big to wear it now.
Did I Mention the buttons? So cute!
I have to confess though that the neck opening is done up with push studs and the buttons are stitched on top. It appears that I still can’t master buttonholes! Any suggestions on how I exorcise this ghost are welcome!
