A little bit about me.

I love tutorials. If I follow a tutorial, even if I don't do it perfectly, I always link to theirs. All photographs are mine, are never taken from the original tutorial, and are never as good as the original.

5 (uh, 11) Hour (ahem, week) Boy (er, girl) Sweater (cough, cardigan)

On or around the middle of December, I started on the Baby Boy Five Hour Sweater. And I just finished it. I chose the boy sweater instead of the girl sweater because I didn't like the filligrie holes and whatnot in the girl sweater. But I used a nice lavender yarn with bunny rabbit buttons, so nobody's mistaking my baby girl for a boy. The yarn I bought as part of my Black Friday haul from Michael's, but I threw away the label and I can't find the extra ball I purchased right now. I'll update when it turns up. The buttons are from JoAnn's.

The verdict? This really was an easy sweater. I just didn't have a whole lot of motivation, and kept starting other projects and not finishing anything. Twice I came to points where I put the needles down for extended periods of time, once when I reached a stitch I didn't know and once when I had to look up how to seam the arms closed using a crochet slip stitch.
And because I slacked off, the sweater is just a tad too small. It won't close. Oh well. I think I'll give this one to my toddler for one of her baby dolls.
