Finally - a completed knitted garment

I have finished the green cardigan. Not sure about the fit as the intended recipient is most likely in Nancy's bedroom, but love the colour and style.

It is of course for Barbie. The pattern is from Nicky Epstein's Barbie patterns book. The yarn some nameless wool I got at Stitches last year. It was fun to knit, but took a surprisingly long time to make. The finishing alone took an hour...!

Anyway - in other knitting news I have finished my secret expect more knitting content soon. Im currently working on a pair of pirate hats for the boys, but have had an interim request for sweater and trousers for Lamby. This presents a challenge as Lamby is a finger puppet. I might settle for miniature pirate hats for Lamby and Bunny.

You say "it is of course for Barbie" but there is no scale - so I thought you had knitted something extremely odd and very chunky. I think you need to follow my example and kit your self out with a second hand Barbie - just for modelling purposes you understand(!).

Also - I see your point - bifurcation for Lamby does seem an impossibility.
