I finally finished seaming Evie just in time for Easter but have only just got around to sharing. Knitted in Rowan 4ply cotton which comes in so many lovely shades but is seems to be so slow for me to knit with, something to do with the lack of give in the yarn? I'm not sure, but whatever it is it makes for slow knitting for a child's garment. I do love it though and a cotton sweater is so useful for cooler spring and summer days.
The sizing is huge again, I made age 4-5, Tilly will be 5 in November, in particular it seems very wide, this seems to be case with so many children's patterns but I never quite have the nerve to adjust them. Oh well, at least she will get plenty of wear out of it.
The daisy embroidery continues, I made a sample to begin with and I love how that came out but can't seem to get the same fluidity in the second attempt, typical huh? It is the same with taking photographs for the blog, I take maybe 15 shots but the first one is still the best.
And now I must go and do some watering in the garden, yes that's right, water, in April!! Crazy I know but precious new plants are fading in this amazing weather. Where are those April showers?
