I’m working on two cream polar fleece Toaster Sweaters today.  I’d made one for Daughter No2 last year, in the Autumn and she loved it – until I put it in the wash with a whole lot of dark things.  Not cream anymore!  Still wearable, but dull and dingy.  So I promised I would make it right, naturally.  In the meantime, Daughter No1 announced she’d rather like one in that colour please, not the dingy one, a nice cream one.

Ever obliging, 3m of polar fleece was duly purchased from Closs & Hamblin, washed and ready to go.  I cut the straight Medium for Daughter No2 and the Small (across the body and in length and width of sleeves) for Daughter No1.  She likes a looser fit across the top half, so I cut the medium in the raglan and neck area.  Make sense?
