There is something so satisfying in sewing the label into a finished garment… Here is a sneaky preview – the jumper is done. This picture shows off the saddle – it was worth undoing again and again, in this finished version the two rows of knit stitches frame the entire saddle. Now I am just waiting for him to try it on (“Gosh, it is rather long” was Esther’s comment), I will finish writing the pattern and wait for the photographer to return from his USA trip to take some awesome shots.
