I finished a sweater for a friend’s daughter. It was truly fun. I used The Handy Book of Top Down Sweaters by Ann Budd as a guide. Even though this is made of quite slippery, drapey synthetic, Sirdar Snuggle, I knit in the round and steeked it. That was interesting. I’m not into sewing and the yarn really required sewing before cutting. Katelyn’s mom told me she loved muppet babies. I looked high and low for muppet baby buttons and found the pin kind from Revolutionary Bum. They were very well made so my thought is that she can always simply remove them if she wants more traditional buttons sewn on.

This cozy, warm, chunky cowl has been very popular lately. It, like Shirell's Messy Bun - Ponytail Hat, is a perfect last-minute gift for a knit-worthy loved one. It's made using just one ball of Wool and the Gang's Crazy Sexy Wool. This yarn is next to the skin soft and lofty for warmth.
