It didn't knit in a couple of hours though, either the magazine exaggerates or I am slow- possibly a mix of both. It took me a just over a week of knitting at least one hour a day. I am very pleased with the result;
fresh off the needles waiting for sewing
Sewn together and worn as intended.
Stephanie placed her order as soon as the pattern started to take shape- she seemed most put out when I said this one is for me LOL
She wants one exactly the same as mine, a pink one and a white one apparently.
Luckily the pattern is so simple I can adapt it from the adult sizes to fit her fairly easily. So when I get five minutes I will begin hers. I'll start with one the same colour as mine as I have that yarn out already.
Now I must go and get showered and ready for the day as it is my nephews 3rd birthday and I need to go and visit him. I'm being lazy today though I didn't wake until 8.30am. I'm normally in the gym and half way through my work out by then. Not sure if I will make it to the gym today now.
