This was a stop and go knit. Left my original knitting down at the farm so i had to start all over again. Just as well.
I got a bit frustrated with this test as i found out at two places you dont read the pattern literally. So a months worth of knitting ended up being wrong. So it was a stop, put down and knit again. But its done and dusted now.
I ended up using 4 ply cotton to knit this. Size is newborn.
