A Blog Post

Wow, really? I guess it has been quite a while since I last posted. It's not like I haven't been knitting, because I definitely have. Since the last post, I've made three more afghan squares, two hats, two pair of felted clogs, two sweaters for The Girl, two baby hats, one baby sweater, one big girl sweater (mine) and two Easter baskets. The one project that's made me want to actually post is this one:

Look, it's a child-sized 103-1 Drops a-line jacket!. Oh this one is love city, baby. I was talking to Gina a couple of weeks ago on the phone and was asking her opinion as to weather I should try to make this in a child size by knitting at a smaller gauge. Not only did she tell me to go for it, she also gave me the yarn for my birthday to make it.

Pattern: Drops 103-1
Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash, color 824
Start date: April 11
Finish date: April 23
Modifications: Knitted the XL size with size 7 needles on worsted weight yarn to make a size 4. Also knitted sides and back pieces together.

Bonus extra pictures, since I took 99.

And it only cost me one Littlest Pet Shop toy to get her to model!
