Small Things

This one is called The Craziest Lil' Coathanger in the World:

I had a lot of little bits of wool that I wanted to get rid of, and after such a
huge project as the Babe Sweater, I wanted to do something quick and easy - and crazy!
The ends will form fringes once its finished. I want to get rid of all my wire coathangers
and replace them all with cushy ones I have made myself. Mmmmm, comfy...

The project of a lifetime

I have finished the Babe Sweater. But it seems the pictures my flatmate took of it have been deleted, so I can't show you what it looks like. This distresses me and pisses me off enormously. (To be fair, I should have asked for the pictures straight away.) I have consoled myself however, by spending half an hour making an artist's impression of the sweater using Paint:

Voila. That's basketweave stitch on the yoke, and variegated pearly wool on the ribbing.

Here is also a picture I do have of the pieces of the sweater before I sewed them together:

(I have to admit the little arms are cute!)

The sweater is now on its merry way to the best baby in the world.
