UFOs

...unfinished objects; I am working my way down a list (well through paper bags in my under the stairs craft cupboard).

I started this little number 18 months ago just before I broke my leg. You would think that having a broken leg would give one plenty of knitting time... tho I did have a five month old baby when I did it. Knowing that I can be a lousy knitter...the will to finish has alway been a problem, you see knitting can be terribly time consuming. Anyway knowing that I have a lack of will I fortuitously made it in a size 1; I obvilously failed to give myself enough credit for my lack of will because she will be two in two months. Anyhoo. I have finished and she is wearing it - shortish sleeves look a bit funky and stylish don't you agree?


I am quite fond of the button too...

Such a stylish girl -- it looks like a little bolero jacket! And I love the button, too... It's funny, in my house, if I wear a sweater with a nice button, my little Blooms fuss over who gets to hold it ... This leaves me with a little Bloom (or two) clutching at the front of my sweater half the day!

That sweater is gorgeous - but not nearly as gorgeous as the little girl sporting it so jauntily! Oh, melt my heart. And how I laughed at the under-estimation of your procrastination abilities. I hear ya!

UFO! I love that abbreviation. I love your creation, too and that button sure is something.

Just gorgeous...both the knit and the little one. Good on you for finishing it - I have so many 'UFOs', good idea, a list always works...right?!

Just gorgeous in every single way, including the model!

Lists can work little gnome...if it is not misplaced or something much more exciting to do comes along.

Dmm...I think it is resin, a little handmade number I picked up at one of my favourite shops http://www.biome.com.au/
