Finished Objects 2009 - #20

The return of the finished object, hurrah!

Turns out that the vomited on baby jacket could in fact be saved for one reason only - centre-pull balls. That's right. The vomit was on the outside, the nice clean unbiled yarn on the centre. Trust me, the jacket was soaked in eucalyptus wool wash for about half an hour as well!

This is the 5 Hour Baby Sweater, Boy Version and it's a super fast knit (obviously). Not five hours, of course, but what do you expect with a newborn floating around? I omitted buttonholes because I just wanted something I could quickly wrap around him if the wind picks up or something like that.

I would have dressed Marcus in the jacket but considering it's currently 32C and it seemed a tad cruel.

Great job on finishing an object.

The yarn looks gorgeous, it looks hand-spun?

Marcus is growing!

Don't worry, it's Melbourne, it will be freezing cold again next week! :)
