What I did in the middle of the night (think clean thoughts)!

Remember the Te Amo jumpers? I’d thought I had till July to finish it but it was actually due in June!! I was only half way through the back of the jumper, the front was complete and I hadn’t touched the sleeves. I had a night of grace so I stayed up till 4am to complete my labour of love.

I must apologise for the poor quality of the photos. It was taken with an iPhone (not known for its picture quality) at 4 am in the morning (I’m not a morning person at all). Now let me walk you through what I did after knitting till my fingers went numb.

First, I joined the shoulders and the edge of the sleeves:

I joined the bottom of the sleeves together and then the sides.

After it was all joined up, I admired my jumper in all its glory – moved to tears by the thought of a homeless Peruvian boy wearing it with pride.

 Finally, it was time to catch the 3 hours of sleep I had left so I folded the jumper, ready to send it in the post to Peru :).

What a privilege to be able to give in this way.

  4. Wow, I’m so impressed. I love the colors. I can understand why you’d be moved to tears. It was such a wonderful thing to do. What a great gift of love. I’m sure the boy who gets it will feel all that love surrounding him.

  5. Well done. And after such an intense workout don’t you feel a combination of pride and wretchedness. Tired – but you have completed something that lasts.

    • Yeah, I definitely felt wrecked! But worth it nonetheless. There are very few things I can say that about :-). Thanks for stopping by ;).
