Remember this? In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all for your advice on this problem – I know I’ve said it before, but I LOVE the knit-blogging community.
I decided to go with the majority and frog back to the armhole and re-knit the front in the darker shade – I put it off for a while but in the end it only took an evening to re-do (I think I am a very slow knitter!). This pic doesn’t show it as well, but the colours line up on both sides now!
I still haven’t decided on colour to do the top-stitching over the join – am waiting on the baby to arrive – if a boy I’ll probably do navy and if a girl then red (or I just might do red anyway). Or perhaps an olive green might go well with the tones. And with the buttons (I haven’t actually sewn them on yet, I might still change my mind on those too). They are a bit blurry in this pic but they are little teddy heads (yes, more teddy heads!). Happy to receive any views on colour for topstitching and button style/colour too!
Hopefully baby will arrive soon – s/he was due a week ago! Poor mother in this heat!
I’ll do a proper FO post once I’ve actually finished it properly!! I think I’m getting my knitting mojo back though – hurrah!
