Down with Fit Frustration!
Jennifer asked what my next project would be. Last night, I cast on a toddler sweater for CIC. I am hoping that will be the next challenge, but as I understand it, there is always a need for toddler sweaters. After all the sizing issues with the InsideOut socks, I wanted a fun project - and I know this "will fit some child -- somewhere!"
The patters is an old standby - "Wonderful Wallaby" by Cottage Creations. I have made it many times, and truly enjoy the pattern. This is a size 4, out of a Denim color Paton's classic Merino. I plan to make the "pouch pocket" from the Denim Marl. I do not plan on making the hood, rather a rolled open color. I wouldn't think the kids would need a hood inside, although perhaps the pocket would be fun for someone to keep their special "things" in. (Marguerite, if you are reading this, and have a different opinion, let me know. I have enough yarn for the hood, I am sure.)
It is a cool and rainy day here today. Low stress level in our house (aka: Lazy Saturday). Sofee is just chilling, trying to avoid all liquids in an attempt to wait out the rain!! Not sure she'll make it... but venturing out in the rain is just one step up from dealing with snow on the ground, and we all know how she feels about THAT!!
