The End is Nigh.

So I've finished Ruby's Basket & Bobbles sweater - all but the zipper and front bands. I haven't attached the sleeves or woven in the ends yet, because I want to wet-block it first. But I wanted to show it to you today anyway, in its unblocked state. Also it's on a 4.5 year old, instead of a newly-three, so take that into account.

It turned out pretty cute, see?
Pompom forthcoming.

"Hey Em, model this for me, would you?"
"No Mummy, I hate modelling."
"Hmm. Too bad. Well, you have to or you can't have any Hokey Pokey ice cream later."




"That's the spirit!"


After a few minutes she cheered up...until I reminded her that she wasn't supposed to be having any fun.


This will be all finished by the end of next week. I think I've got just enough of the coloured yarns left over to make some small pompoms for the zipper pull, as well as for the end of the hat. Then I'll be able to label it, mail it to Ontario, and turn my attention to the rest of the Christmas projects...how exciting!

That looks wonderful - but you could have put entrelac made out of fun fur and she would have made it look adorable.
