Honey Bee Sweater

Sorry for disappearing for so long, I hadn't planned on it but you know 'life'

While I was on my break I finished knitting Rosie's Honey Bee Sweater.  This is a design by Dani Sunshine from Eden Cottage Yarn's Drift Collection.  I knit this in the recommended Whitfell DK in the colour way Misty Woods.  Whitfell DK is a baby alpaca yarn and was a dream to knit with.

Rosie was very pleased with her new sweater and spent a good while bouncing around the room going 'I love, love, love my new sweater!'

Now I have to knit another one for Christopher, he has chosen the Charcoal colour for his version.

What a lovely sweater. Rosie is looking very pretty in it, and more grown up too.

Aww... that is so sweet that Rosie loves her new sweater, Karoline. She truly does look beautiful in that color :)

Rosie looks great in her new sweater. The colour and the pattern are so beautiful.
Hmmm, at a certain age boys aren't in love with colours, it seems. But Christopher will love his sweater a lot as well:))
