Sewing Result

I did get some sewing done today. This is a nightie for our new granddaughter. I also managed to finish crocheting the cardigan for the old granddaughter, but haven't started to put it together yet. I will have to get busy because Miss 24 is planning a drive to Adelaide soon and she can do a delivery for me!

This jumper is the work of Mrs 26 (picklesticks.) She is a wonderful knitter, but really dislikes sewing up her creations. So, the last time I was in Adelaide I grabbed a bunch to sew up and finish off for her. I'm not much on the knitting, but I quite like sewing knitting up! (Call me weird!) I think tomorrow will be another day of sewing here. I'm looking forward to it!

What a sweet little nightie! Your certainly putting your new table into production, Kris.

Had to chuckle when I read that Mrs. 26 likes to knit, but doesn`t like sewing up her finished work, but that you like this part - sounds like you make a great team.
I feel the same way as Mrs. 26... maybe I`d knit more if I had someone to do the stitching up bit ;o)

I used to enjoy sewing knitting up for my mother, I suppose it's becuase you can see it finished quite quickly, I can't knit very well though.

The jumper looks so much better without all the ends hanging out. I do love having someone to do sewing up for me! Can't wait to see my yet unborn baby in that nightie!

I think the nightie could serve as a dress too! I even called it a dress in my previous comment! I hadn't read your description yet ;-).
