A few months ago, Pumpkin Girl was playing dress up and came down wearing her First Communion dress. Here's how our conversation went while I was evaluating my next project (after just finishing CPH).
PG: Mom, I want a hoodie just like yours but in pink.
PG: But first, I want a little jacket just like the one I have on.
Me: You mean like this? [showing her this]
Here it is (finally!!!) with the button sewn on:
Pattern: Peony Knits
Yarn: 1 skein TLC Cotton Plus in Hot Pink
Needles: Addi Circulars in US #8
(02/19/07 - 02/24/07)
Modifications: My gauge was 5 st per inch. I cast on 74 and did a 2x2 rib for 1.5". Put a buttonhole within 1" of CO.
I would have finished earlier except I ripped so many times. Poor planning on my part - I was 3" into the eyelets then I noticed that the YOs were not flowing smoothly from the ribbing ... so rip back to the ribbing and adjust my markers. Then I'm sailing along then I notice that I forgot a YO and rip back. In the end, I'm happy with the project. Pumpkin Girl is thrilled with the results!
