And done!!

So here it is the completed purple bubblegum jacket....

ta daa!!

It looks a deeper purple in reality but this does capture the hint of pink tone to it so it's all good.

For another angle on the colour check out the source. So one skein of Colinette Jitterbug in the Velvet Bilberry colourway. JUST had enough to complete the 3 month old size, did think I was going to run out completely but scraped it in by doing the collar in garter stitch instead of ribbing and was able to get away with a couple less rows because the garter stitch used less stitches and was bulkier. The garter stitch also matched the curviness of the pattern stitch so that was good too! Found some slightly larger buttons at Lincraft this morning, they were also quite see through so darkened when stitched on.


Will probably have to block this one, I don't normally as the garments I make are so small, but the seams, especially the underside of the arm, need a bit of flattening out. Will also take a photo tomorrow in daylight and see if I can't get a more accurate colour match.

Hmmmm what's next????

very nice! I cannot knit a stitch and am very impressed. The buttons are perfect.

Happy Blogtoberfest!
