It was soooooooooo fast to knit. Done knitting in 5 days. Took me 2 more to work in the ends, and sew on the buttons - but that was ummm laziness ;)
The best part tho - was that because it was stranded, I was able to use up 2 balls of super thin, but lovely wool, that I would never have found a use for, and another equally lonely ball of wool that might have just sat sad in my knitting basket until ..... the end of time.
My favorite part tho (did I say that already? - hmm ok I have a best part and a favorite part ;)
My favorite part was that the lovely light purple wool, was left from one of her very first sweaters - the 2nd sweater I ever knit. The sweater that I knit in purple, in that very specific shade of purple, because it was *her* color. I hadn't met her yet, but I knew. It's still her color.
So this sweater had to be knitted, and I didn't care one bit that at the start I hadn't enough yarn, and wasn't sure if it would turn out - I just knew it had to be.
And so it was.
Here's the pattern

A certain older girl wants one now - and she even picked out a bunch of other lonely balls of wool.......
Tho I must say I'm a wee bit nervous about her choice of colors, and whether or not there is enough, but since it all worked out with this one, I'll just have to have faith. It will be somewhat of a coat of many colors ;)
