WinTeR WarMeR

A lovely warm, soft & cuddly jumper all finished for my GS.
This jumper is made slightly longer in the back... so less GAP between pants and jumper.

* * * * *
And I purchased a new quilt marking pen. Its a Karisma brand Mechanical Ceramic Pencil. The Japanese have used this form of marking for years & years. It takes the worry out of marking quilting lines where the quilt will end up in a CoLd climate where the heat removable pen lines may reappear. I've never had any problems but I thought I would try this method. I chose the light fabric marker with the pencil but I also added a insert/refill for darks to the order too. I'll let you know how I feel about it when I get to use it.

And a quick ReMinDeR that all

This is a gorgeous little jumper and it looks so warm and snuggly.
I am interested to know how you find the new marking pen.

Dasha said...

The jumper is lovely Cheryll. Lucky boy. I use the SewLine pencil which is good, but it does leave marks, so you need to wash the quilt. I don't generally do that before I gift it. Would be interested to see how you go with yours.

great jumper, and a wonderful idea to have a longer back

Jo said...

Nice jumper. When you make the jumper longer at the back do you just gather it up in the side seams.
How do you remove then pencil marks.
My parcel has been posted
