Fixed and Finished

Two weeks ago I wrote about fixing something that you've knitted.  At the time, I was consumed with my errors, and I didn't have a way to include pictures.  Today, I have the means to post photos, AND it's finished!  And not JUST finished, but last week finished.
I told you, she likes that pose!
Here's the stripe problem, front and back. These go with the blog about fixing (see February 13, 2012)

Quite an original pattern, with the false sleeves.  I started with orange cuffs, but they were sub-standard so I cut them off and knitted purple (larger) cuffs as an afterthought.

 This became my Egypt-sitting-on-the-beach project since I was determined that at least ONE of my projects would be purchased, knitted, completed and delivered without crossing the Atlantic several times!
The pattern:
From DaleGarn mini 2-8 år (years) nr 184

The pattern is "Sweater" 18407 designed by Kari Haugen.
The yarn: Falk by Dale of Norway/Dalegarn, Sport / 5 ply, 100% Wool, 116 yards / 50 grams

It was a joy to knit, and went so fast!  I've been knitting on 1's and 2's... Bigger needles!  Yay! 


  1. What a CUTE sweater. And on such a cutie. I must admire your intrepid imagination because when I look at that poor little red-headed boy wearing the example from the pattern book, I'm pretty much revolted! I don't think he likes it either, by the look on his face. I fear my reaction is very American (or maybe very Texan) and horribly sexist. I don't think you can put boys in such cutie things. Males in big polka dots? Eeeeewwww! I apologize in advance to all of your Continental, sophisticated, less parochial friends who say, "What? Of course boys look great in cute polka dot sweaters!" I do realize we Americans dress our little girls like tarts and our little boys like jocks. And then think aspirin between the knees is a good idea for contraception. We're just nuts. But I digress.

  3. The comment was removed b/c iPad wouldn't let me edit it, it froze up!

    What I was trying to say is that Little J makes such a wonderful model! And this sweater will fit her longer- good job, Grama!


Go ahead! Tell me what's on your mind.
