FO Summer Days test.

Recently I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to test knit once again for the fabulous designer Elena Nodel.  This time it was a gorgeous wee bolero carry for Miss M called Summer Days.  I made Miss M the 19 inch size and got it out of just under 50g of 4ply yarn.  This pattern is actually written for a sport weight yarn but I got gauge with Jolly Jumbuck merino/cashmere/nylon which is a 'plumpish' 4ply.
I don't think there is anything I don't love about this knit.  The construction is fabulous, the broken rib gives a lovely fit and the wee puff sleeves are too cute for words.  I was also thrilled to find the perfect buttons from Buttons by Benji at my LYS HRYC.
And on the girl herself.
