Completed project - at last




Sewn up and completed at last. Am pleased enough with them. Although I would not use this yarn again for a baby's garment. It was Wendy 4ply luxury cotton and a lot of little bits fluffed up, so I have had to wash the garments and 'brush' gently off the spare cotton. Perhaps after a few washes it will settle down, in fact I'm quite sure it will from experiene, but its not great when your giving a gift as I can't wash it numerous times. The pattern was from a Debbie Bliss book Number 1 for babies and children. It was easy enough to follow but the bootees were a little pointy at the back, so I might use a different bootee pattern again.
Have posted my Knitters Treat package today. Hopefully it will get there in the next week or so. I enjoyed buying the gifts and putting it all together. This is the first time to do an exchange and I really enjoyed doing it. Hopefully the recipient likes what I bought her.
