Remember this charity sweater I was knitting on?
Well I finished it last night and this is what it looked like when I cast off.
Hmmmm. Not much of a sweater.
Maybe if I turn it 90 degrees
and fold it in half
Voila! A sweater!
Pretty nice after I weave in all the ends.
Stats on this sweater are:
Total Project Time: 18 days
Pattern used: Warm Woolies Super Simple Sweater
Size: 2-4(more like 18 months to me)
Yarn: Some unknown wool off of eBay. I used the rest of it up and had to use abt 2 or 3 inches of Paton's Black and Germantown Navy blue to finish it off. (it's hard to see it in the pic since I took it last night with lousy lighting)
I'm glad that I'm almost done with that mystery wool from eBay. I've bought other wool off eBay before that was fine, but this stuff is itchy!! I'm just glad the child will be wearing a shirt under this. Definitely NOT what you want against your skin. I only have a little bit left in red to use up and then it's GONE!
Not all yarn is itchy, however. Some yarn is soft and yummy and oh so beautiful! What am I speaking of? Well on Saturday I got this in the mail.
Brenda from Molecular Knitting was having a contest and my random number came up! Thanks, Brenda!! The added stuff was really a nice touch.
Isn't this gorgeous yarn?
There is 550yds of this stuff, definitely more than a pair of socks so I'm not sure what I will make with it. Any suggestions are welcome!
