I knitted this jumpsuit after it was requested by the lady that also ordered the vest I posted about recently. I wasn’t sure about it initially as I’ve not knitted it before, and I have to be honest. It’s the first pattern where knitting it felt a bit tedious.
This is the first time that I’ve really knitted intarsia and I can’t say I love it. It just takes too long for my liking. I think it wasn’t helped by the fact that I was knitting with DROPS Baby AlpacaSilk, which is very thin indeed.
However, I do like the effect of it on the finished item. I think it looks really, really nice. I think I’ll probably be the only one that notices that I’ve made a couple of mistakes, I hope nobody else notices :-).
And the buttons are a purchase from last Saturday at the Knitting and Stitching Show (I will do my final report and a post on what I’ve bought in the next few days.) I picked them particularly for this jumpsuit and love how they finish off the item.
