Top down jumper of odd balls

A large part of my stash are the only skeins of a kind. Pretty colours, though not enough to knit a larger project. And how many hats does one need? So I decided to combine some yarns. This jumper is the outcome. Size: 5 years (oversized, I like it when she has some use of it a bit longer).

For the top part I used the combination of the PIF wool I got from Christien -50 grams of each colourway- and the 2 balls of red Rowan Pure Wool DK I'd stashed.
I liked the idea of a girly finishing and that's when the Veeler Wolletje of Tessa came in.

Dory is very pleased with this 'Princess Jumper' as she calls it.

I lack the nerve to try things like that, I'm to unsure of myself colourwise ;)

prachtig resultaat. Het ziet er schitterend uit.

En alweer krijg ik goesting om ook zoiets te breien, maar ik vrees dat mijn jongens dit niet gaan dragen :)
