Cool Blue

I knitted the little hoodie sweater for my son's best friend's first baby - little "AJ". The shower was last Sunday. The pattern is "Hooded Cardigan 3898" by Sirdar Spinning using Sirdar Snuggly DK. It wasn't a difficult pattern but the instructions were written by a U.K. company for British knitters. I'm not an expert knitter but have enough experience to be able to get the gist of what the writer was talking about. For example, "commencing with the second row, work one inch of one by one ribbing". After picking up a couple hundred stitches around the fronts and hood, I figured out the direction I had to be going to get the button holes on the "boys side", as if that really matters....Patterns written in the US in 2017 would tell you to work one knit row, then start the ribbing. No matter, it came out fine, because I have many baby sweaters in my rear view mirror. I'm loving the cool blues right now because it's HOT HOT…
