I was going to have the Frog model it, but it's a little small for him. This is going to a boy that just turned 2 and weighs almost 20 lbs. less than our monstrous Frog. It should fit him just fine.
The pattern I used came from the Debbie Bliss book, Special Knits. There are a lot of cute things in that book that I want to make. There aren't a lot of designs for boys, though. That's a little disappointing.
I don't have buttons for this (I've been waiting to buy the buttons for this and the flower jacket together) yet so it's not completely finished. I'm thinking some small red or navy buttons. Or, I might just find some cream to go with the main color. We'll see what they have.
After casting off, I went downstairs to look through my stash to see what I could make next. I want to make a scarf/mitten/hat set for myself out of Cascade 220. But, I don't have the colors I want. So, that will have to wait. I decided to get out some sock yarn that I bought for Sugar Daddy. I'm making him some socks out of Wildfoote color Zane Grey. Here's my progress so far. Sock knitting is slow going with kids around, that's for sure.
