Do you remember Liliana?
This is the picture from the pattern book…
I had finished knitting her and just had the neckband and sewing up to do last February when I was overwhelmed by my beautiful furry ginger boy, Thug dying. I couldn’t face the fiddly sewing up and Liliana was flug to one side and forgotten. Poor Liliana…
I’m now in a,
” I want to start new things and get all the old WIPS out of the way!“
kind of mood so Liliana has had the finishing treatment and actually – I wish I’d finished her sooner – she’s rather a warm and snuzzley success!
So without further ado – I present the finished Liliana…
A shot of the back (you can see where it’s quite fitted and a little snug – probably because of Christmas excesses!)…
And a close up of the neck band – which is a thin strip of rib, sewn on sideways and tied in a bow….not sure I’d do that again – gapes a bit but I think it looks ok??
She is a very warm jumper although the Aura is a little irritating on my skin if I’m honest – and I’m not usually that sensitive to itchy yarns.
There were lots of previous blog posts talking about Liliana so I’ll just give you the completed knit report containg the list of previous posts and leave you to click away if wish 🙂
