how to save a sweater

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about a sweater I was knitting as a sample for mum's sweater. While mum's sweater turned out okay [read the full story here if you haven't heard it already] the child's sweater did not.

But it has been saved! After a swim in the frogpond [where it was reduced to a body and two stumpy arms] it was kissed knitted again by a beautiful princess never-say-die blogger into this:

And just because it's my blog and I can show off if I want to to - some texture in the form of mock baby cables:

That's the end of the blue Panda "Baby Lustre" 8ply but I still have 500g of the mauve to use! Just as well it is knitting up more softly!


  1. The new jumper looks great! The baby cables add a really nice touch.

  2. Hooray! It is beautiful now! Good to perservere, isn't it?!

  3. Ooh, it's gorgeous! That swim in the frog pond did it some good :)

  4. I knew you would not give up. Wonderful jumper.

  5. oh fantastic! and yes of course you can show off on your own blog. That's what blogs are for!
