BabyDrops Garter Stitch Jacket b13-9 by Drops Design
5 balls Debbie Bliss Merino Aran – Red
5mm rosewood pins
Buttons – handmade ceramics by Tessa Wolfe Murray see pic below. Decided against the toggles in the pic above. Think I bought these from the button lady in the Apple Market, Covent Garden years ago.
No mods on this one. Knit side to side in one piece. I made it with about a metre to spare…….and just enough to sew it up. I’ve decided that she’s long in the body, so this may only just fit into the spring. Am happy to give measurements if anyone’s interested. This would be good in All Seasons Cotton too.
In action, already with peanut butter on the front!
We’ve had alot of heavy stuff going on with family and friends lately, so I’m taking a blog break (if you hadn’t already noticed).
We did have a superb holiday to Gran Canaria and visit with grandparents and I’m still knitting, but rather slowly.
You can catch me occasionally on Ravelry as castoncastoff.
Wishing you the safest and happiest of Christmasses.
