Too small and too big


A little while back I finished Mil's jumper.  Ravelry link here. The first thing I have knitted for my lovely boy.  I am fairly happy with it.  I love the yarn (Stylecraft Pure Luxury Merino DK)... so so soft, but I made a bit of a mess of the neck... not thinking very clearly about how the two-tone was going to work.  And then... the damn thing ended up being way too small!  Good old Mil wore it for a while, insisting that it was 'fine' but really it was way too short in the arms and in the body. 

I'm knitting him a new jumper now... a tank top, which will be the right size!  And, luckily there is a cousin this can go straight to, and then it can come back for our next.



So, too big?  That's me.  I'm too big, way too big.  Going for the op on Tuesday... wish me luck!

Ah, good luck - will be thinking of you! You look fabulous though - the day before my sections I looked like a whale from all angles, but you look like a slim person with a rather large bump on the front. I bet you barely show from behind ;-)

I think that means today. Best of luck! My sister had hers on Saturday morning, and her little girl is just perfect.
