And now it's done.
It looks short, I know, but it grew a bit just by wetting it and laying it out (from 30cm up to about 36). Jasmine hasn't worn it yet (because it's STILL wet, stupid Winter) but it seemed a good length before wet-blocking. Perhaps the sleeves are a bit long... we'll see, one day when it dries...
That's what I did to the inside of the hem. The last few rows of moss stitch weren't enough to stop the silly stocking stitch curl, but pulling in on the back like this did the trick.
Something about the picture above makes me feel sea sick. hehehe.
And another little WIP, some 10ply merino sock yarn handpainted with jelly. It's purple, blue, yellow and green with bits of white. It changes color almost every stitch, but I'm getting sick of the pastelly nature of these, I must say, in spite of the appeal of the butterfly blocks.
Note the project bag by Kelgell which I love. I bought this silvery one to be fairly neutral, and a bright pink one "For Jasmine", but I'm starting to change my mind about giving it to her, to be honest... you can't have too many project bags Ü
I've also cast on my first Milo because a little girl at the knitting group looked so cute in it! I'm sure I'll make a few of these. This first one is in a black tweedy yarn, size 9 months, for Zachary, who will be 5 months in about 20 minutes. (Hope it's not too small! lol). I knit a fair bit watching the World Cup, where we tied with Ghana to give ourselves the most unlikely place from which to rise up and win the whole thing... hehe. One more game to watch, and hopefully they will thrash Serbia and give us a few more games.
I'm in the Australian team on the WorldCup2010 ravelry group. Go Knitaroos! hehe.
