WHAT to do WHEN YOU KNIT a SWEATER for GRANDCHILD
and she WONT WEAR IT DUE to ITCHING WOOL!
You would think I would know this after having a business for 25 years selling Kids knit sweaters I designed and machine knit!!!and therefore I would not carefully
HAND spot DYE
and then hand knit a 100% wool sweater for my favourite little grandaughter!
. . .but there I was in Paris surrounded by the most incredible knitting shops . . .. without all the rug stuff . . .and
I needed something to do with the hands . .. so I knit it anyway !
As a baby she had not given any opinion as to itching . .. but now she is 4 and
of course has very determined opinions . . ..
OK. . .
I won't give up . . .
I am lining it -all by hand . . .stitch by stitch . . .. since its a rainy day and she will be arriving here by the sea on saturday!
Its a soft soft washed already flannelette . . . ..
Its looking good!
Hoping she will wear it!
