FO: Birthday Jumper and Luke’s Party

We celebrated two birthdays last week. My 34th was on Tuesday and I had a lovely day with Luke and some friends going to a local farm, in glorious sunshine. Then it was Luke’s 4th birthday, I cannot believe this little munchkin is now four years old.

Luke had a birthday party organised through a friend of mine who runs a great children’s entertainment party, Punk Me Up Buttercup at her shop All Fired Up. Luke invited some of his Kindergarten friends and some other friends and they all had a fabulous time.

For his birthday, Luke got some toys and books from me and his Papa, but I also knitted him a birthday jumper. It’s this lovely DROPS pattern.

I love, love, love this pattern. It knits up really quickly, mainly because it uses DROPS Merino Extra Fine and I also went up a needle size after checking my gauge. Luke tends to need clothes that are size 2-3 years in width, but size 4-5 in length, so I knew I needed to make it a bit longer.

And I know I am biased, but I think Luke looks gorgeous in his birthday jumper, and he’s been wearing it loads since last week.
