Give me an A!

It's done! Wendy's Girlfriend's School Spirit Sweater for Little Man is done!
It's big on him which is great - by the time he gets to wear it next year (a bit earlier than usual when we are in Europe in March) it will fit him perfectly. It was done in 3 and a bit balls of Katia Diana (50% acrylic/19% polymide/18% rayon and 13% angora) and was a super quick knit. It was my first top down and I LOVED that. As mentioned before I HATE WITH A PASSION seaming/finishing/weaving/anything to do with a needle and thread, so having to do a minimum of that suits me down to the ground. Still gotta find a letter to go on the front, I checked out Lincraft the other day but as usual they had diddly squat in the way of anything useful.
Sorry about the blur in the blue jumper - trying to get a toddler to stand still for more than 2 seconds is like asking a bear to do it's business elsewhere.

Also sorry for the HUGE pics, damn blogger is not playing today.

I'm hoping to get to spinning class tomorrow. It will be my first time, but also my last for a few weeks as next Monday I'm off to Melbourne for a couple of weeks of sitting in the Flemington carpark looking at horses on TV screens (and hopefully with a day off to check out Melbourne LYSs!! Suggestions people! I have no clue what you guys have down there). And then this Saturday is a Knitting morning and I'm really hoping I can get to that too.

So now I can get back to the neglected Opal socks and hopefully finish them off before I go away (or maybe I could take them down there. Hmmm, what to do next. You know me and my End Of Project Confusion...)

How cute is that? Oh the jumper too... Even if you don't get a letter it looks good. I hear the place to go down south is Marta's Yarns. Lots of hand dyed, spun stuff.
(the word veri-thingy is saying "iwonplop" HA!)

I really like the sweater, especially the colors. Now that I see your version, I'm thinking how great it would look on my own "Little Man".
