I’ve written two exams and there is only one more to go for this year (there are 4 more in January.). I am sorry that I couldn’t reply any emails/comments and that I’ve been invisible from IM’s lately. Thanks for the nice comments, nice emails and nice messages to me!
This sweater was finished more than 1 week ago, right, even before my last post, but I only managed to take the final picture this weekend. Although it is only for a toy, it is the first sweater I knitted.
The pattern is from the book “Toys to knit“. Honestly, the bear in the sweater is the only thing in the book that interests me. It is actually very weird that the bear doesn’t show up on the cover. I am sure that the book will be more attractive if the bear is on the cover. The other knitted toys are really not as cute as the bear. The worse thing is there is a mistake on the sweater pattern. Two dots are missing. I only noticed this after I finished the flower patterns. Everyone that finished the same sweater from Ravelry has followed the wrong pattern. I suspect there are more mistakes in the book. I don’t think the book worth so much. I didn’t make the bear coming with the sweater. Surprisingly, the sweater fits the lion very well. 😀
Gotta go back to my review on finals. Having joined Ravelry makes me more and more addictive to knitting now. 😀
