I present, the Big Digger Sweater:
Yes. It is THAT cute. Now - the sizing on this sweater was a little wacky to me - it said to fit a 22 inch chest, you would be knitting a 29 inch sweater. It just looked HUGE to me. So I ended up ripping out, and casting on enough so that the finished sweater is about 26 inches across - much more reasonable for the 2 year old that I have in mind.
Only thing is - when I re-sized it - I kind of forgot to center the digger chart on the front.... so it's a little offset. Aaron assures me that it just looks like the digger is driving onto the front.
Here is a close up of the actual digger. I really suck at embellishing my knitting - so it was a big feat for me to add this embroidery. I would say it took me almost as long to do all the finishing as it did to knit the pieces - but totally worth it:
Pattern: Big Digger Sweater (rav link)
Yarn: Dale of Norway, Faulk. 4 Balls of the navy, one each of the orange, green and blue.
OK - back to Christmas knitting!
