Well, after weeks of feeling disgruntled about the lack of knitting time, I finish this little beauty in under a week. I've made several of these little hoodies and each one has been a great success. The pattern is quick and easy (Hooded Kaftan by Debbie Bliss and the Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK is lovely to work with and washes beautifully.
So little Evie, you'll be a snuggly little grey mouse in your new hoodie. It's a little large at the moment, but will soon be a comfy fit. I made the 12 to 24 month size, using five balls of yarn.
The surprising thing about these photos, is that they were all taken during a five minute snippet of time at around 5.30p.m. on a sunny late afternoon/early evening, and yet the light has thrown up two ends of the 'grey' colour range!!!! The actual colour is the darker grey.
Never mind the success of the close-up shot to show you the sweet side styling, have a look at that great grass! ;-)
Love how the simple neck opening lays well and requires no buttons or extras.
So, little grey mouse, what colour shall I make next? Perhaps you can become a gorgeous green alligator!
