>Finished Sweater

>What do you think, should I sew the woolly flower on or not?
Here’s the sweater with the flower:

And here it is without:

sweater without flower

The mistake in the pattern isn’t really obvious but I know it’s there. So do I hide it with the flower or not?

You can see in the photo just how much of the light blue wool I was short – how annoying is that? I was so close to finishing the front when I ran out. I think it looks alright though, I just wish I could decide what to do about that flower.

I’ve been knitting a child’s charity sweater on the Bond. I need to do the two sleeves and then I’m going to try and sew it up using the linker. This time I’m going to try and do it the way it’s done in the DVD. Hopefully I’ll get a better result with it than I usually do.

Talk to you later,

    >That is a lovely sweater :)The mistake in the pattern is definitely not visible and I am sure it's more beautiful in two colors that in would have been any other way (seriously, when I first set my eyes on the pics my first thought was what a wonderful idea 🙂 )I think it looks a wee bit better without the flower (though I like it both ways).(Originally posted on 27th August 2007)
