Well folks, I couldn’t stare at that fuzzy mess any longer. I frogged the Rainbow Baby Cardigan, and I enjoyed doing it. Life is too short to knit with bad yarn. I have no idea what I’ll do with the Chroma in my stash, but I can tell you this – it will not be used to make ANY baby things.
Now that that’s out of the way, I had to start something new.
I’m making a little dress for Baby #2! I’m using bigger yarn and bigger needles than specified in the pattern, so I’m hoping the dress turns out a little big. I want her to be able to get more than 2 weeks’ use out of it.
Here’s a close-up of the yarn I’m using:
It’s Debbie Bliss Bella, which is 85% cotton, 10% silk, and 5% cashmere. This yarn is so much nicer than what I’m accustomed to using. I bought it today while visiting a LYS (local yarn store) in Mt. Holly. Today’s trip marked my second time visiting a LYS, so it was kind of a big deal. 🙂 (I’ll probably write a post about my yarn store adventure tomorrow.)
This pattern doesn’t look too complicated, so I’m hoping it goes quickly. I have tons of stuff to finish before May arrives!
