It started out as a pattern I'd found, but I modified it to death since I didn't like the sleeves and the bottom. I can say, however, it is a raglan sweater.
This was made out of CARON SIMPLY SOFT SHADOWS in the 'Autumn' colorway. Hopefully it will be big enough to fit mystery baby when the weather cools down next fall. PLUS next week, the kids will find out if it's a boy or girl (if he/she isn't too modest) and everything should be color/pattern suitable after that.
The reason I picked this color was 1) I liked the long changes in it and 2) SOMEBODY ought to be having a redhead at some point in time.
- I'm a redhead (sort of old penny, but still)
- My mom was a redhead (true auburn)
- TWO my son's great grandmas were redheads
That li'l gene is gonna pop out somewhere, so just in case ....
I've also been moving a lot of my knitting stuff into one room. It has taken over the whole house and HAS to be gotten back under control.
Not much, but a start and this room as the added benefit of having access to a full attic if the stash starts to explode again.
