So my niece’s birthday was actually last week but her party — and the gift giving — doesn’t happen until today which means the bolero is done, just in time. It actually went pretty quickly, that is, until the end — then it got very stockinette stitch boring. And since I don’t knit 75-80 stitches per minute it took a little while to do the back, especially the widest part with the sleeves. And being boring and all I put off finishing it until the last possible moment which is why it was still drying at 10:00 this morning. Details are below.
Pattern: fluffy bolero from Erika Knight’s simple knits for little cherubs

Modifications: I didn’t make any modifications but there are a number of mis-prints in this pattern that needed correction.
