The pattern ( an OOP Onion childs pattern ) calls for 1.50 meter of fleece or coat-fabric to make a childs coat. My piece of fabric ( a remnant so no chance of getting more) was just 77 cm long, so I simply cut off some of the length of the pattern and made a jacket that is hopefully long enough.
The construction was pretty easy and here it is:
I hope that Rosie will like it. If not, Annika please donate it to someone who needs it! So now I used all the fabric I bought at the PR weekend in October. Not too bad ( o.k. I still have leftovers from the jacket but I have to see what I'm going to do with them. No remnants with this one though)
I have to admit, that I procastinated a bit, so I took the jacket with me to finish it on our sewing-weekend. It's not too bad to go to a very lonely place with nothing around you to distract you except other sewers or heavy rain :) I also finished the muslin for my viva scandinavia dress and it fits well without big alterations!
Here are 2 pics from my little retreat ;)
And knittingwise: I finished my firestarter-socks and send them to Norway today. I became an SP11 angel and decided to give up my socks to make someone happy ( plus I send her some Wollmeise yarn ;) )
Yarn: My own handdyed wool/ramie blend. The base yarn was purchased from "Das Wollschaf" and has a very nice touch to it. It is slightly thicker than "regular" yarn.
On my needles now are plain vanilla socks for my Granny-in-law. Her birthday party is on sunday and I'm 3/4 thru the second sock. Cross your fingers that I'll make it. They are sooo boring to knit, so I also cast on "Friday Harbour" socks from "Knitting on the road" with the "sonniger Oktober" yarn that my sp11 pal Katja send me
