This is Lazaro, from the Mirasol collection by Jane Ellison. My sister bought me the pattern book for my birthday, and althopugh the origianl is made in a variagated yarn, I like how this has turned out:-) I used DB merino DK, and I really enjoyed knitting with this yarn, nice and soft!
When I bought Lizzy the dummy, I ordered a petite size, to reflect myself as thats what I intended to use her for. I always assumed thats what I had got but tbh, there is many a time when I have tried something knitted on her, and its looked quite tight!!! Assuming that she was the right size, I've just assumed thats how the garment will look on me. Now if I had measured her when She arrived a year ago, I would have noticed this..........

The shirt in the picture fits me, but is 6" too small for Lizzy:-0( How did I miss that, I was convinced she was the right size! She even looks my size!!!!! Probably best not to try and use her for anthing fitted or it'll get stretched:-( She's so pretty too..........
I've been working on an assignment for the past few weeks on and off, mixed with work it hasn't left me with much time to blog, but its now handed in, and finished with, unlessI fail that is!!! So two days off after today, and I'll be knit knit knitting:-)
Our neighbours are having their roof replaced at the moment, so there is scaffolding up for the roofers to get up and get done. Unfortunately, (for DH anyway) the scaffolding is interfering with our sky signal, so we've had no TV for almost a fortnight. I'm not really bothered tbh as I've got my talking books and knitting to keep me occupied, or even a proper book, but DH is bored. I think he's quite appalled that he now has to converse with me at mealtimes rather than chuckle away at The simpsons, hehehe, poor thing, maybe he should take up knitting:-)

Lazaro is such a lovely colour, and I'm sure it's a beautiful fit on you! I love the detail on the cap sleeves.

I'm sure Lizzy would be engulfed in huge folds of yarn if I tried one of my jumpers on her!

The tank top is really lovely - and looks good on Lizzy!!! - can't believe that shirt on her though - she hides her size well doesn't she?!
