Gemma's Woodland Sweater

Omigosh, I am so in love with this little sweater!  I knit it to be a Christmas present for Gemma, but I won't be able to wait, and will put it on her as soon as there is a chill in the air.


I knit it using this wonderful pattern and KnitPicks' Wool of the Andes in the Forest Heather colorway.   Then I needle-felted the toadstools attached them to the sweater after blocking it.  My Ravelry notes are here.  I'm really pleased!

  8. I never thought to needle felt the design on my knitting. Good call because my knitting with multiple colors is hideous but this would solve the problem...at least on some projects.
