A Christmas Jumper!

Hi!  Did you know that the 18th December was Christmas Jumper Day?????  I didn't at first but it was set up to raise funds for various charities.  Take a look *HERE*. on the ITV website.  As *The Craft Barn* wanted to do something to celebrate this day we were asked to make something.  So I went the full hog and knitted a teensy jumper to hang on my Christmas Tree :-D.

I had a search and found some free patterns on the internet *HERE*.  There are so many to choose from!!!!  This one is around 3inches high to give you an idea of scale.  I used rib for mine and added a decorated *Tando Mini Snowflake*.  (The little stars are from the snowflake centres.)  I painted them with PaperArtsy Mermaid and then added some *Stickles* for sparkle.  They were glued in place.  I made a little wire hanger to hook the jumper onto my tree.

I loved knitting this so much that I am doing more to make some bunting :-D

Have a lovely Christmas xxx
