A little something for the little one to keep warm while dancing. It took less than 1 skein of yarn and they knitted up really quick. I knitted them in about 3 classes worth--each one about 45 minutes. I think it tooke me longer coming up with the pattern than knitting them. If I had wrote it down and followed it step by step it would have been faster but I "trusted" my memory...not a good thing, each week (she has dance class every Monday), I had forgotten where I left of, so I had to count a lot of the rows.
It will be great if I had a little bit of the same yarn to make her a shrug but I do not think I have enough, I will have to see. The yarn I used is the discontinued Optimum by South West Trading Company. It is a super soft wool, very nice for children. I love it and I wish they hadn't discontinued it.
This little item was my ticket into the Fall 2008 Cable KAL (ravelry link). As always, working with cables is always a super fun treat! If anyone is interested in a pattern, I'll sit down and write it down, just let me know in the comments section. Have a fun week!
