Pink Enough




It was the jumper that jumped the queue. And then the queue got its own back, and toilet-training sisters caused unforeseen delays

But then it was done, and it was lovely, and all was right with the world.

And there was dancing to prove it.


The pattern is Rubble by Alison Brookbanks. The yarn is Cleckheaton. The colour is pink enough to please her and not pink enough to displease me.





I'm reading a novel. About something other than parenting. It's good.
Ravelry notes here.
Yarn Along here.


Speaking of 'queue jumping', are you (Australians) watching Go Back to Where You Came From on SBS. Throat-constrictingly powerful stuff.

  1. Ooh that's a cute jumper and love the wool. Off to check out the pattern, I think my 5 yr old would like this too.

  3. Oh it is beautiful. I love it! Especially the dirty knees :) It looks like such a practical jumper if I had a girl I'd cast one on myself. Your knitting is fantastic!

  4. I would quite like an adult sized version of that sweater! It might even make me dance!
    I love a three quarter length sleeve...so practical for all those great mommy things like washing the dishes and bathing the baby!

  5. Oh, the sweater turned out beautifully (and goes perfectly with dancing and muddy knees - love it)!

  6. LOVE the three-quarter length sleeves - I never knit anything for my wee girl with full length sleeves because I loathe the soggy edge when she's been to wash her hands (and can't bear watching my careful stitches being rolled up for said activity). This pattern looks PERFECT and will be on my to-do list immediately.

    Lovely colour and design.
    Enjoy

  9. I'm still reading Simplicity Parenting. I'm reading on average a few lines every day or so. I pick it up and fall asleep. Can't believe I ever used to read a book from cover to cover. When do you ever find time to read with all that knitting woman?

  21. Love it! The colour is a perfect purple for me (I think I am the only purple lover I know) It looks great on Lola and your pictures are wonderful.

  22. I love it too. Purple was my favourite colour as a child.

    You seem to knit so quickly. Do you knit English or Continental style?

    :)
