shove it up your bum. Really I hate hate hate the applied i-cord. It takes forever. I find it fussy. Bleh. Obviously I've just done some applied i-cord. Ya wanna see? Well I would hate to disappoint, so here goes:
Yarn: Cotton-Ease by Lionbrand. (white, popsical blue and candy blue (white is the new cotton-ease, the others are the old formula).
Needles: US 7
Modifications: This is the second size which is for 12-18 month olds. I love this sweater. I still need to weave in the ends of this. I hated doing the applied i-cord. It was irritating. On the next sweater I'll try something a little bit different. Because there will be another one, in fact I've already started it...
And then because I had some yarn leftover from the blanket and sweater, I decided to whip up a little matching hat.
( I love this picture! Yes I am a dork.)
I completely admit that the idea for this hat was blatantly stolen from someone on Ravelry.
Pattern: Umbilical Cord Hat from Stitch 'n Bitch
Yarn: Cotton-Ease leftovers..
Needles: US 7
Modifications: I used the stripe pattern from the sweater. I think I made it a bit longer before starting the decreases then the pattern recommended.
If I have time before the baby shower I will make some of those little mittens. The kind with no thumbs, ya know what I mean? I don't have a pattern picked out yet, so if anyone has a great pattern that they would like to pass on to me, please leave a comment!
Speaking of comments, this week my goal is going to be to comment on more of the blogs that I read. I started yesterday, and I'm determined to change my lurker ways!
