Blogtober 16th: Testing, testing


I’ve been a very bad tester lately. I promised the lovely Crafty Wee Wifey that I’d knit this tester up for her a month or more ago now, but my selfish knitting has been getting in the way.  And that is this lovely wee knit? You might recognise it as a Spring Butterfly cardigan. I knit one back in March when she initially tested the pattern.  It is now being expanded to include more sizes, and I volunteered to knit whatever size she needed. I got picked for size 3 months, perfect for my friend’s new wee bundle.

I used Wool Company Avocado for the top, which is double stranded, and the co-ordinating Watermelon for the body of the cardigan.   With the addition of a couple of recycled buttons it was all complete.
This is such a super quick knit (She says, now), with all of the body easily knit up in one day in the snatches of knitting time I managed. The  frill was finished off this morning, all in all this would be  a brilliant gift knit for a new wee treasure.  Just lovely. The expanded pattern is due to be released soon.
