Rosie's Jumper

I am pleased to say that 'Jeni's Super Stretch Bind off' worked a treat and Rosie's jumper is finished.  She was so pleased with it that despite it being one of the warmest days in August she had to wear the jumper all day!

Jumper King Cole pattern 3360
knit in King Cole Galaxy

I struggled to get a good picture of it as Rosie was busy dancing round the room and Christopher was busy trying to 'photo bomb' the shoot...

While we were away I also managed to finish the socks in King Cole Zigzag that I had been working on.

I love the way children will wear things they like, no matter if it suits the weather. At least you know you've got it right! The socks and jumper look lovely

It's beautiful! Glad the bind off worked! What sweet children, and Christopher looks the picture of innocence. :)

I grew up wearing hand knitted cardigans (by my mum) - it sounds trite but it really makes the garment so much more special when your mum or someone close has knitted it for you. I love the colour, Rosie really suits it.

I can see why Rosie wanted to wear her lovely sweater all day--it is just perfect. Your little girl and boy are so sweet, Karoline--what little cherubs :)
