Miniature knitting for Jenny and Lexie

It didn't take long to sew on the buttons and sewing in the ends wasn't so bad for Jenny's new blue sweater, it was better than sewing pieces of a knitted garment together (this one is seamless).

On Saturday morning I pressed Jenny's new sweater and put it on her.

It rained quite a lot but there was a break in the weather during the afternoon so I ventured outside to take a photo of Lexie and Jenny wearing their sweaters, with the rosehips in the garden.

I also spent time sorting out the pattern instructions for this piece of miniature knitting, I had already written it up but needed to check everything carefully and get it into a form which can be printed out for reference when knitting.  The fair-isle part of the pattern is shown as a colourful grid (using an excel spreadsheet).

They look very sweet in their new sweaters, nice and warm for the coming winter. It's also very good of you to share your pattern with others.

Just how sweet and delightful these two little girls look in their OOAK sweaters!
Well done to you!
