Some woolie love to share

Can I share my excitement? Please....

I started knitting back in June when I moved to Ireland and didn't have any of my sewing stuff. Well, I fell in love. And the very very first Hyena Cart special wool yarn I bought was a colorway called "Chopsticks". I LOVED it. Then it got lost and THEN it got found and then I decided to get a custom shirt to match (thanks Kaysie from Wacky Alpacky!!). And then I had about 10 Christmas presents and other projects, etc. etc. etc. to do. But last week I finished!!!!!!!!!

And here it is, modeled by my daughter (21 months and a 12" inseam - eeks!). So happy to have finally made this!

Thank you! And the shirt matches perfectly. Thank you!! (0h, the Selah Seion longies that you made the T appliqué shirt for got felted. I cried. So now I have to try to find some new yarn that will match, because I love that shirt!)

Oops I usually give the dyer too. I had a hard time knowing what to do about the hem and pockets, but I ended up loving the rolled hem. I might add on a black cuff when her legs get longer.

I have 1/2 skein left. Should I make a hat?? Or wait another 2 months to find out if I'm having a girl and make a matching nb pair. I LOVE this colorway. Girly but different.
