It's finally done!
I finished Eirin's jacket today. I must admit I have had all the knitting done a week ago, but I don't like to sew in sleeves, so it has taken some time to finish it... I wish I had made this a raglan jacket instead. The jacket might have been a little narrower over her shoulders if it had been a raglan. She is thin as a nail so it became a bit loose on her even if I knitted the size 8. She has obviously grown since the jacket became a little short even though I knitted a few centimeters longer than it was in the pattern for a size 8 years.
And it just had to be Hello Kitty buttons :)
Pattern: Trøje med knapper from Kæk og klassisk børnestrik by Lene Holme Samsøe.
Yarn: Mor Aase Superwash. About 150 g each of pink and blue and 50 g grey.
