Oop... dat was faster than expected.

So I just finished Fuzzy. Thank GOD. I was really getting tired of that yarn. Now I just have to decide what I want to do with the darn 2nd skein. *sigh*

Anyway, here it is:
All girly and fuzzy and SOFT... And I think I made the sleeves too short... but that may be a good thing/ may help keep her from eating the fuzz...

1 down...

It's finished. I decided against the ribbon ties for now, until she gets here and I can judge with it on her.

All in all, (even though it's pretty much my own pattern now) I'd rate it a 4.5- Look-5, Ease of creation- 4 (because of sewing it all together)

After having worked on the fuzzy sweater which is knit in one piece and then divided for the armholes, I think if I make another wrap sweater I will do the same thing with it. Sewing the side seams was a pain. I <3 circular knitting.


Is nice. But a pain in the rear to knit with.

This is the Fuzzy Baby Sweater as of this morning. I'm moving pretty quickly with it... all I have left to do is the sleeves. The fur seems to be getting in the way though. It wasn't so bad on the flat pieces, but the circular sleeves are a bit tricky. Overall I'd rate the yarn a 3/5. Finished look- 4/5, Ease of use- 2/5. As for the pattern, it scores a perfect 5, for both look and ease of creation. I definitely want to make her a couple more of these in a different type of yarn.

Now... off to work on the sleeves again.
