Unblocked… the neck is a little wonky. But I tell him that at least it is so wide it doesn’t itch his neck.
So, what is it that keeps us from finishing certain projects?? This was supposed to be a birthday gift last January… And then I thought maybe the body was too small… but it’s ok… and then I wasn’t happy about picking up the sleeves in the round, but that was ok too. In the end, I’m not so sure I’m happy with the neck, but it will have to do.
In some ways knitting this without a pattern was easier, you know, just go. But in others, I wonder if the neck would’ve been better. But then it seems that any pattern I use, I have to adjust it for something.
It’s a pattern from an old Rebecca Baby & Kids booklet. I’m doing it in Cotton Fleece, Cavern (dark navy).
Which sent us home from work early… and I went shopping at the Goodwill for spoons. Every time I need a spoon at work, there are none to be found. The “spoon” bag contained spoons, forks, glass plates, a glass cake dish, army pants (I love the big pockets and comfy fit for field trips… though they are not in the least flattering), army jacket that I will return…

And with a bit of help I made this (click on the “launch our ecological reserve maps”).
It needs a bit of tweaking, but I see all sorts of possibilities! And FYI, I posted ecoreserve fact sheets and maps recently…
