I figured out the sleeves, so here are two pictures! I will say that I like to stick to small items for kids because of cost and time constraints. I do not like being stuck in boring stockinette land (or garter stitch land) for very long. My time is more valuable than that right now. I need changes — cables (very in right now), ribbing, and increases and decreases for shaping. The top photo shows the yarn, Lion Homespun. My older son chose the color. You will also see the front and back (my first three needle bind-off) and one and a half sleeves.
This will be a hooded sweater a la Lion Brand. I’ve been upset with my nearest local yarn store (LYS), so I’ve jumped to Hancock Fabrics for yarn and patterns. I don’t love Hancock enough to give it a hyperlink, though. Anymore, it feels like a KMart. Ick. Who made that decision? I give it a thumbs down.
I will probaby stop acting like a spoiled brat and drive a couple extra miles to the next nearest LYS next time I need supplies. Like this week. My oldest daughter has been waiting and waiting for me to get her started on an adaptation of fetching — but I can’t spare her the circular row counter that I’ll be using for a couple more projects. You may remember my version of fetching, and my younger daughter‘s version of fetching. We’ll be one fetching group of girls! I feel a group photo in our future.
I will probably get some crafty kids’ photos up later this week — pumpkin carving! They look might kick-ass this evening on our porch.
