Last August, right after I finished the Axel Pullover for Taylor, Christy decided she wanted one too. The pattern came in about a dozen different sizes so it was no problem. I had to order the yarn from online as none of the stores I looked in while I was in the Lower Mainland had enough of it in stock.
I knit the sweater and then decided it was going to be miles to big for Christy. So I took it all apart and knit it again, this time in a smaller size.

When we got Christy’s Christmas list she said she wanted a scarf. I asked for more details and she mentioned that “one that Mum makes is always the best (and my jacket is green)”. I didn’t plan this as a Christmas gift but when I finished it there was still lots of time to get it under her tree before Christmas.

I’ve been trying to clear out a bin of yarn so I made this set. It has been sent to Elizabeth, along with another pair of mitts that I neglected to take a photo of.
The mitts are knit with a double strand of the yarn – the better to use it up! The headband is a seed stitch and I designed the scarf pattern myself.
I had just enough of the peach to make up a scarf and a pair of mittens for a small child; that set will go either to BOND or the Salvation Army.
