Despite what the yarn says, its not that soft never mind supersoft. Its 100% acrylic so what did I expect. It does have a nice stitch definition though so its got that going for it. So anyway, I cast on age 2-4 and knitted merrily and contently.
The next step was to wrestle it on the nephew to see how it fitted. After a lot of struggling (have you every tried to put a jumper on a sick toddler) it was decided that it needed two things - a stretchier cast off and to be an inch longer.

Finally (again) little Flax was done and, following a spin in the washing machine, it was ready to be given to its new owner.

The jumper seems to fit the nephew well and so, in true auntie fashion, I've started another one for him in Cascade 220 in a nice teal/blue. Hopefully the sleeves won't be an issue for me this time.
