I have been making things over here. When no one is looking. Sometimes I sit and watch movies and crochet all afternoon with only my bladder to interrupt. It really is quite amazing. So different than the last couple years.
I found a pattern that was kind of like this but in knit and realized that though I know the basic stitches I can't read the patterns and don't know how to do anything that isn't called knit or purl. So, while I wanted to make this sweater for the Bug I knew I was going to have to resize the pattern. I couldn't even tell where you were starting on the pattern so I didn't know how to go about resizing. But I know how to make a baby sweater in crochet. I know how to resize. I even taught a class on making fake ribbing in crochet. So I had everything I needed.
This was going to be all blue. But I ran out. Wow did he get big! I know this should have been expected but I had no idea. This has about 4 skeins in it. Granted, the ribbing takes up a lot of yarn... but still, people! I made him a vest last year that took exactly one skein. One.
I haven't tried it on him because it has been too warm. I really hope he'll wear it. I love how it turned out!
ps- I finally found a good place to take pictures. On the front door. Who woulda thought?
