A very blueberry T

I'm amazed at how quickly I finished this!



Pattern: Very Berry T from March 2007 MagKnits
Yarn: Crystal Palace Bamboozle Yarn in Blueberries-Grapes colorway
Needles: Size 7 Addi Turbos (16") for body and size 7 bamboo dpns for sleeves
This FO is definitely not perfect. I made a very visible error in one row of the lace pattern but didn't really notice it until I was way past it and too lazy to go back and try to correct it. I also had some trial and error going on when I was attaching the sleeves to the body, which resulted in some gaps. But luckily, they are at the underarm and I was able to kinda fudge them closed.
I'm concerned that this is going to be way to small for my daughter. I made the 4 year old size (my daughter is a petite 3 year old, but I figured I'd still err on the side of being too big), but I'm not sure it will fit her. I have yet to block it, so maybe I can get some size out of it that way. I probably won't get a chance to block until this weekend, so if all goes well, I can post a picture of the kid wearing it! Otherwise, I'll have to find some other lucky little girl to be the recipient of this.

Darlin, it looks awesome!!! And from my experience if you give lace a vicious blocking it'll stretch a lot... so you should be fine! Can't wait to see it... Bagels and Yarn day soon? xox

Totally adorable! and I'm pretty sure I've already said this, but I love the colors! Hopefully a good blocking will make it fit.
