Do you remember this jacket?
or as modelled by litte A. –
Yesterday afternoon this jacket died the felting death in the dryer (sigh), accidentally wandering in with bedding. This hoodie was already known as A’s jacket and fit him extremely well (as you can see – it is a bit difficult to imagine this, when it’s modelled by a teddy bear). Emergency – rather dramatic – phone call from my little sister to express her horror about what had happened – oh well, what are big sisters for if not for knitting things for their nephews? 🙂 Obviously, we don’t have any of this yarn left in this colour (or at least not enough of it to repeat the pattern) – otherwise it would have been too easy… We found a couple of UK shops which sell Araucania, but it isn’t easy to figure out if they have same colourway, as they use different colour codes. Anyway, my sister will get a ‘yarn show’ via Skype to choose from our stash, otherwise we’ll have to hunt for that colour… Or if anyone has an idea for a substitute yarn in a that blue colour…?
