Ta da!

Ellen was unwell over the weekend and I have kept her off school for a couple of days as she can't shake off a nasty cough. I was sad to miss my knitting group yesterday (especially as I hear Jill brought in cake - Happy Birthday, Jill!) but managed to finish Ellen's T-shirt and persuaded her to pose for a photo:

This was a great knit from Magknits. I changed the neck slightly, as Ellen needed a bigger gap to get the T-shirt on, so I stopped a decrease before the pattern instructed, but other than that followed it pretty much to the letter. I am really delighted with the way this knitted up and can't quite believe the whole thing only took a week from cast-on to finish!

And I was thrilled to find out not only who my secret pal who I will be sending to is but also to get an email from my secret pal! How exciting! My pal has told me quite a bit about herself and I am really looking forward to finding out more about them both as this round progresses.

Great top! You'd better get a few more in whilst the children are still young (and small).
