Wow!

I bet no-one even checks this blog anymore!
Ever since I got onto Ravelry (online knitting community if you didn't know), I have let my blog slip. Yeah, and I am doing all my work and schoolwork online too, so it isn't as much fun to be online any more.
I did want to share this cute ballet sweater I recently made for Z:
ballet sweater 1
It was an easy knit, but I had to totally steek it to get it to fit her right. Otherwise, it would have been in the closet until she turned 8 or so. Really, it almost fit me! I got gauge, so I don't know what happened. I lost gauge at some point, going from 18 st per 4" to 15 st! Makes a difference. This pattern already runs big, so I definitely didn't need that to happen. Faced with the dilemma of what to do, I decided that I would risk it and try to steek it to fit. I always wanted to steek something, but never had the guts. I took a sweatshirt that fits Zora now, and matched it up with that as best I could. It did look a little weird in the front (because it was just so wrong in size, I couldn't quite fix that...so, I put 2 buttons there, and I do think it is cute, cute, cute. Perhaps cuter!
I love the big cuffs.
Oh, it is Molly - from Junior Knits (D Bliss).
