Getting Closer to Spring
On Saturday, we rolled the clocks ahead - taking us that much closer to spring. I cannot wait!
Today was a pretty good day for a Monday. I had a really great weekend, too. I finished Justin's sweater, although I'm not so sure not that it will fit him. I crocheted the sweater following the instructions for a size 4 toddler, and even went up two hook sizes to make it a little roomier. I haven't tried it on Justin yet, but I'm really afraid it won't fit him, and he only wears a size 3 in everything else. I think it's the stitch pattern - it's not very forgiving (It's a single crochet, ch 1 stitch combination, with all single crochets worked into the ch 1 space on subsequent rows). There's no stretch to it when it's finished. Well, if it doesn't fit him, I'll make another! I'll shoot for a size 6, and donate the other sweater.
I also finished a toddler hat for a co-worker and she loved it! It's my spiral seam hat pattern. I made it in a soft yellow color and finished it with a button atop the stem. Then I worked some interchangeable flowers that will just button into place on the top of the hat. Everyone at work loved it! In fact, I posted a photo on my facebook page, and I even heard from a cousin who wants one in an adult size.
Anyway, here are photos of Justin's sweater, and the hat with the flowers.
