Yay! It's a FO!!

Hooray! I now have one less UFO. (Does that mean I get to start another one? Lol!)

This is an absolute cutie:

I just adore the little peas in their pods, the little stems on the pods, the tendrilly curls on the tip of the hood!!

Hmmm ... Blogger seems to want to flip this one sideways. Oh well.
I used 3 heart shaped shell buttons, with crochet loops. (Thanks Miss D for your advice, it really was much easier than the instructions made out!)

The only part I didn't really enjoy was sewing all the picot edging down. It has picots on every edge which adds to the cuteness factor, but I was soooo glad when it was all done.
Gorgeous pattern too - knitted all in one piece. Just a few stitches to graft at the shoulders & that was it. The top of the hood was done using a 3 needle bind off.
Love love love it!!!
