Reknitting the body of Flossie really didn’t take very long – and I’m glad I did it.
I clearly should have made the small size – silly Susan 🙁
A quick note on yarn amounts – the pattern calls for 12 balls for medium and 10 for a small. I got the medium out of 9 balls and the small out of 8 – Grrr.
The good news is I’m pleased with her and I look about 4 sizes smaller now when I wear her 😀
Want to see a before and after shot?
That shot doesn’t quite show how dramatic the difference was but believe me – it was worth it!
And Purcey thinks so too!
Now a quick Completed Knit Report and on to another winter warmer which I have whizzed through!
|Completed Knit Report|
|Pattern:||By Martin Storey from Easy Winter Knits|
|Pattern Problems:||Yarn amounts over estimated significantly( and sizing – I made the medium which came up bang on size but too big for me so had to reknit in a small)|
|Washing and Wearing:||Extremely warm and snuggly but the big collar makes eating soup a challenge…(ask me how I know)|
|Knit It Again???:||Yes but not for a long time – one of these in the wardrobe is enough|
|Other Postings Relating To This One:||Should have known better|
