Photography Challenge day - 3KCBWDAY2

Playmobil is The Little Model's current favourite toy when she comes to visit.  She has begun inventing little conversations between the tiny figures and taking them out to play.  Yesterday we set the school out for a knitting lesson

Habu cotton gima , left over from Erica Knight's little notebooks with needles made from tooth picks and tiny beads seemed (nearly) the right scale for the figures.

When TLM had gone home I unpinned the pieces of my vintage cardigan which had been blocking on the spare bed since the weekend.

I have been making this for AGES and yet, despite how near I got to the end and being able to try it on at last, I was falling asleep mid stitch before I had finished the i-cord bind off on the neck band and left the sleeves to sew in another day

But in the morning...

And on a closer look

I found the last button under the sofa.  The silk yarn was a joy to knit and is sooo luxurious to wear.  I am thinking I need a very special skirt to wear with it
