Wait a second...
That's a finished object! I finished sewing on the rosy-pink buttons last night and I am so proud to say that I finished Willow's school cardigan *five* whole days before she started school!
Yarn: 2.5 skeins of Forest Green Lion Brand Wool-Ease
Pattern: Child's Top-Down cardigan by Mary Rich Godwin I" wasn't a fan of the pattern, but to each his own)
Needles: Size 8 Knitpicks Options Circulars and Susan Bates DPNs
Duration: About three weeks.
And this was the picture after we took the cardigan shots...
Mommy does not have patience with kids who can't stand still for 10 seconds... She got over it - this interlude lasted a nano-second. Child, thy name is mercurial.
And for another exercise in frustration, the ball of yarn I unwound last night:
Yeah, the one that Had 7 friggin' knots in it! It is one of those 615 yard behemoths from JoAnn's - I was going to start a baby afghan for my sister but scrapped that idea when I started coming away with multiple balls. I am glad I decided to re-wind this instead of just knitting from the middle.
