A Wallaby for TW

after knitting the last three projects I had earned enough yarn for a Wallaby! (rav link, purchase online here or here)

I had purchased the pattern even before TW was born, and I’m so glad I did.

Nice and warm
for a lunch picnic

The pattern is written in a very chatty manner, but after a few read-throughs it was really easy and everything went together very nicely!

I knit with a slightly thicker yarn than called for (Manos Del Uraguay Wool Clasica – which is Aran weight), and about a size and half bigger than TW's current size, so it is nice and warm and should fit him for a couple of seasons.

He loves it, but says that it 'tickles' (itches) so he has to wear a long sleeved shirt underneath.

This was my first 'big' sweater and I had a ton of fun with it and it went by so quickly! I can't wait to knit more sweaters!
