Another Wallaby

Finished up a Willie Wallaby for my Wee Niece in Scotland. When I finished her Lempster I asked my sister what she'd like me to do with the leftover yarn; there was quite a bit left. She picked a sweater for her daughter. I see her wearing the other Wallabies I've made for her when we video call so I went with what is clearly a winning pattern again. I love making this sweater anyway, so any excuse will do.

Pattern: The Wonderful Wallaby
Yarn: J C Rennie Chunky Lambswool in Atlantic Spray
Needle: and 5.0mm
Gauge: 4.5 stitches = 2.5 cm

Current Weather
26C and sunny. We skipped Spring and went straight to Summer this year.
