…. this would be the jacket he would make for himself.
He would probably sing a knitting hum while he knitted.
The more the rows.
The more the rows, Tiddly pom
The more it grows
The more it grows, Tiddly pom
The more I knows.’
Anyway, it’s actually Dougie’s summer jacket, knitted in Debbie Bliss Eco Baby cotton and he will look even better in it than Winnie. I hope he loves the fabric covered dinosaur buttons as much as I do.
The jacket has been a long time in the making, there were other projects that kept creeping in and seemed more urgent (like the waistcoat for his outfit for Jeff and Sarah’s wedding) and beginning his new playmat. And it seemed to take such a long time to sew together for such a little garment.
Well it’s finished all in good time; it will fit him for the summer and he will get it before we go off on holiday
To quote wise Winnie the Pooh ‘Rivers know this, there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.’
