Very pleased to see you, isn't he?
The yarn is very cheap and cheerful, and very, very clashing in the colour combinations I've chosen. I'm not sure what possessed me to knit something that gives me such a massive headache.
I don't know what's worse - the photos or the stitch definition.
It's going to be Hattie's 4th birthday blanket. It will be three stripes with elephants on, with heart borders, and because I have not done double knitting, it will need to be lined. I anticipate it being finished at some point in the next year and a half.
The whole pattern book is full of weird and wonderful objects to knit; the Sunflower Jumper is a particular favourite, as is this thing. I won't be knitting anything else from it, I don't think.
I'm sure* it will look fabulous when it is finished. And I'm going to let Hattie choose the colours for the hearts border, so that will be very colourful and probably two different and clashing shades of pink.
