Well a fit was just about what I had. She had BOUGHT a hand-knit when both her mother and her boss are knitters! Her Mum is overseas just now, but I'm not. I rifled the boodle for an appropriate yarn. It took 24 hours to match a pattern with a yarn. FYI, most of my 5ply is in dark colours, completely inappropriate for a sugar and spice 8 month old. Finally I excavated this mid-blue reclaimed yarn. I bought it as a cardie for $1 last year and it has knitted up beautifully in this Paton's pattern jumper with a deep lace edge to the body and sleeves and a picot neckline.
I'm pleased with it and N should get a couple of seasons out of it.
*********COOK FROM THE CUPBOARD - MONDAY
Brekkie: Coffee. It's Monday, who has time for breakfast on a Monday?

My favourite lunch - chopped carrot, beans, broccoli and (over priced) zucchini seved with a teaspoon of margarine and lots of freshly ground black pepper. What? Doesn't everyone have a pepper grinder in their work locker? An orange for afters.
Dinner: Left over mushroom risotto. Orange.
Supper: Tea and a slice of banana cake (ok, two slices of banana cake) fresh from the freezer.
