I made the jacket for my cousin's son Skylar, who will be turning 1. I have not made anything for him and felt he was very deserving and would be too cute in this jacket. I used worsted weight superwash wool (your welcome Winky!) So that Dad can throw it in the wash and not worry.
It took 1 week from start to finish. After a disastrous start, Christina was able to get me on track with starting out with the right number of stitches! Cast on at Monday Knit Night 3/16, seamed and sewed buttons on at Monday Knit Night 3/23.
Of course I couldn't have done it without Chloe's help... now I see why I have cat hair in my knitting :)
Buttons are oh so essential and Lambikins had the perfect ones! Pewter hippos adorn this baby and I think they look adorable! And at $1 a piece I couldn't beat it!
