This was a gift for my niece's 5th birthday and bless her, she loved it! She jumped with excitement when she opened it and put it straight on. She even made a concerted effort to wipe her Pom-Bear- and cake-encrusted hands on a cloth rather than her cardi at tea time.
It was nice to do a spot of knitting for a change and reminded me how comforting it is to be able to craft in front of a good film. It's definitely a much more portable and sociable medium than machine sewing.
Not much to say on the process really. I'm a pretty experienced knitter so cables just fill me with joy rather than dread. I'm not a fan of 'pick-up-and-knit' but I ploughed through that with good cheer.
For a pleasant change you don't have to look at pictures of me pulling strange poses, but get this gorgeous mini minx instead!
