The year end accounting close brought work to a stand still. I was already 90% finished by then. But throughout the year, never picked it up. Until two weeks ago. It’s a good thing the little tyke hasn’t outgrown it cause I made it bigger, and his growth has slowed.
The Completed Work !
Ta-Da ! Yes, I’m very pleased with the completed piece. Something interesting to note here is, this whole piece is entirely made on MRT and buses ( world class..world class…world class…*echo*). I made use of my long commute to knit. All the thread colour change, piecing of shoulders and sleeves – all done on board MRT. There’s always a hurdle to face fellow passengers’ interested stares when fishing out the knitting at first. But I have learnt to live with it.
He loves it! I put it on for him, he smiled happily at me and pat his chest. Has left his drool on it. (*chop* mine) The sleeves are too long. There’s still work to be done, tucking in the threadlings.
Will post a brighter picture when I can.
