Two days before I put the baubles on our tree, I finished some bubbles - namely the "Bubbly Jacket", as I used to call it.bobbles - cables are SO much easier!
The jacket is comfy and cozy... it's warm and it fits... and most important - she likes it! ^-^
Though I used exactly the yarn the pattern called for, my gauge run incredibly small. I was forced to knit a size bigger than my sister actually wears, and it seems it was just right to decide so.
Backside, collar and sleeves are knit in garter stitch, cuffs and front are made using the bobble pattern. I also like how the seams in this piece turned out - almost invisible. A lot of ripping included... and a LOT of loose ends to weave in. I did that "in progress", so I dind't have a hundred ends at one time... a little psychological trick helping me not to drive nuts about that one ;)
It took me forever to finish it, but now it's done. I'm happy with the result and even more happy that sisterMad does like it.
I got lots of stuff to post... wonderful presents I got, some presents I sent away, some things I finished a minute ago... but I will keep those for another day.
I'm off. Need to look at the most beautiful christmas tree in the world for some minutes! (Yes, I might be prejudiced...) ^-^
Sorry for the bad pics - I couldn't use my own camera and was unfamiliar with the one I used, so I got blurry pics in any lightning and at any angle.
