More FO and prgress

Finally finished the Wave Jacket for Aidan. I think I started this in July last year. Here 's Keira modelling it because I forgot to load the flash card into the camera when I had the original photoshoot with Aidan. Doh!




Pattern : Wave Jacket from Miss Bea's Seaside
Yarn : Rowan Denim in Memphis and Tennesse
Needle size : 4mm
Notes and modifications:
The largest size was for a 4 year old so I made a few calculations and added a few stitches and rows. The problem is that my finsihed garment didn't shrink as much as the 20% as stated or as much as my swatch. So the jacket is a bit BIG! It still needs a zip but I'm calling this done.


I also picked up another WIP which I started (some time in winter?) . This is Viv from RYC Am to Pm. I'm knitting this in Rowan DK Soft rather than the RYC Baby Alpaca, although it looks just like the book.

She is so adorable in big bro's sweater! That's a great sweater too. Gotta look for that pattern now... although if it just goes up to size 4, never mind. It would be great to do a tweener version for my Sweetie Boy.
