I took this opportunity to have him model some of my newest projects,
First off, I can't tell you how disappointed I was when I put on his Birthday sweater, and found that the body was 3" too short and the arms were about 2" too short.
I even made it in the size 4, thinking he'd get a lot of wear out of it... boy was I wrong.
But the mitts and hat turned out perfect!
I dropped into Michael's yesterday and found something new sitting on their shelves. A new yarn from Paton's, silk bamboo for $5.99, I had 40% off coupon so why not try it out! well it certainly lives up to it's name! it's a blend of silk and bamboo, it has a nice drape, it's soft and has a very nice sheen to it.
I 'm using it to make one of the stacked eyelet cowls. I'm not sure one spool will be enough? The pattern calls for 150 yards of yarn and the spool only has 102 yards on it. I will probably have to cheat and do one less pattern.
