My weekend

Two girls very happily occupied. One house un-enterable due to building works, so not even a hint of feeling as though I ought to go home and do some of the many tasks waiting for me there. And yet a desire not to spend the entire weekend curled up reading books and exploring the charity shops down Cowley Road.

From this:
To this:
I didn't quite finish it before coming home, but stitched up the last bits this morning. And now my wrists ache, my fingers are cramped, but I have the world's largest and snuggliest new jacket ever.

Of course, being me, my knitting skills aren't quite right - it's substantially wider than it's supposed to be, and I have somehow managed to use five balls of wool less than the pattern called for. So the next question becomes, which child needs a matching jacket the most?

Looks fantastic well done - perhaps you could get some more wool and make both of them one!

Ooooooo...yummy!!! The colors are gorgeous for fall, too. It looks like something you can just curl up in, no matter where you may be. I hope you really enjoy wearing it! :)
