I have two finished projects - not bad!

I had not finished my sons pullover before I went away, so that was the first thing I wanted to do when I got back. It was the very boring part with fastening loose ends and do the neck- and arm-edging. My daughter was really pushing me, 'cause I showed her the pink Colinette yarn and told her I would knit her a top with the yarn. She was constantly asking me when I would start knitting her top. So then I had to finish her brothers pullover. I think it looks nice, but I haven't tried it on him yet.

When the pullover was finished I placed the skein with the very pink Giotto on my umbrella swift and my skein-winder was filled to the edge with only 50 grams of yarn. And with my daughter constantly asking me if her top was finished soon, I have been knitting all evening yesterday and most of this day , too.

On size 8 mm needles and size 4 year it knits up pretty fast. And it also helps to knit in the round up to the arms. I finished the top with crocheting picot edging. On each shoulder I will need 3 buttons. When finished I had 6,4 meter yarn left. I haven't decided what side of the top that looks best, and I am also thinking about adding some crocheted flowers.
But now my daughter hopefully will be satisfied, so then I can go back to the Bliss-pattern.

Love the pullover and your daughter's top looks so nice and bright. Cannot believe how quick it was to knit up.
