These are the results:
Mary was easily convinced to make a sample for the shop, she managed to make the sleeves match!
The yarn is Sirdar's Crofter Snuggly, a self striping yarn that is super soft and washable.
Susan used the same yarn. This was finished just in time as the baby girl was born the morning she finished sewing on the buttons!
Helen chose a yarn from the sale bin, a discontinued Sirdar Cotton Blend. She closed up the eyelet holes and added a stripe to the garter stitch details.
Susan finished this just in time for a friend to purchase it from her, some times you don't need to be the knitter of a hand knit garment.
I played a bit with some Cascade 220 Superwash handpaints and a coordinating solid. Also closing up the eyelet holes to create a more 'boyish' garment.
We may try a few more Knit-a-longs and before you know it you have gifts ready to give!
See you soon!
