Mom and Mom-in-Law- No need to get excited
I feel the need to title this entry "No need to get excited" because the last time I posted a finished project in which I was learning how to do a top down sweater (done in a baby size so I could learn the technique with out trying an entire adult sweater) I got the most bizarre phone call from my mother, asking me repeatedly if I had anything new to tell her about. I know moms can be kooky sometimes, but I am fairly certain the top down baby sweater had something to do with it.
That said, MOM AND MOM-IN-LAW...THERE IS NO BABY ON THE WAY! I am considering adding on this chunky/heavy worsted weight yarn to my line of Duet Yarns and this was just to test the yarn on a small and quick project. Believe it or not, this entire little outfit took just over 200 yards! WOW. I was told by a couple mommies in my knitting group that this is a newborn size, but still a sweater and bottom for a smidge over 200 yards is pretty dang good.
I really love the yarn so it's safe to say you will be seeing it very soon on the website.
Oh yeah and this sweater is the 5 hour quickie sweater which is SUPER quick as long as you read the directions (the stitch count is there for a reason!)
and the bottoms are Curly Purly and has ribbing instead of short rows which is something that soakers have...but I don't know much more than that, I am just telling you what the mommy in my knitting group said :)
So there ya go. A cute little outfit which means pretty yarn to come on the website :)
