The "April" Lady Cardigan

So apparently this pattern, February Lady Sweater, is the hottest craze going around. I don't know why it took me so long to finally jump on the bandwagon.

This sweater was an extremely simple knit. It's a top down raglan sweater so no seaming required. (Gotta love that) Being that it was so simple it also got a tad boring. The garter yoke bored me to tears. Thankfully the bottom part is a lace pattern so that kept me a bit more on my toes.

I was worried about the sizing since I was having Ariana try it on while I was making it. Thankfully and luckily it fit perfect.

It's a very generous sized pattern and it does stretch a bit. I didn't use an all natural fiber since I am trying to use up as much stash as I can. It's a cotton/acrylic blend. It is a tad heavy but Ariana says it's perfect.

With such great success of this cardigan I already started one for myself!

Just a little something for Easter

I decided that for a treat for Alysia's class that I'd whip up something for Easter for her "friends". Being the big procrastinator that I am I waited too long to really make something cute for them. So I opted to crochet little bunny heads for the class. (Although they kinda look like dog heads).
Alysia saw me making them and loved them. She asked who was I making them for, so I told her. A few minutes later she gave me a list of names of all her friends. ( all the kids in her class). She also let me know just how many friends she had. Alysia tells me, "I have 16 friends and here are all their names."
I gave them to the teacher this morning so hopefully teacher will pass them out today or tomorrow.
