For: Sean
Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash in Black & Really Red
Needles: US 7 / 4.5 mm
Size: Toddler/Child
Timeline: February 6-8, 2010
Modifications: Knit pattern as written for the Toddler/Child Size.
Opinion: I love it. Mack loves it even more. That’s what matters.
This pattern is a great stash buster! Between the 2 colors it only uses about 52g.





I am so happy he likes it, and it matches his jacket perfectly!

Last night I booked a trip for Mackenzie & I. We’ll be Vancouver bound at the end of April for almost a week. We are going to be staying with the lovely & wonderful Cynthia for a week of crafting, knitting, and maybe some touristy things. I am very excited, and it’s just what I needed. Kind of what the doctored ordered! Cynthia & I have been friends since 2006 and it will be nice to finally get to hang out with her. Cynthia & I were conspiring earlier, sometime last year, that we wanted to organize a girls craft weekend, so now we’re going to make it happen! (And for just a little bit longer than a weekend!) We’re going to sew and knit and craft. I can’t wait. It’s going to be so much fun! She’s even going to organize a stitch’n’bitch while I’m there. It’s going to be so awesome! I cannot wait! If you are in the Vancouver/Mission area, and want to join us for our knit night – do let me know! I’ll get you the details!


This evening Madeleine came over for supper and then she drove me to the Guild Meeting. I couldn’t stay for too long as I had to ditch out early and be back on time as Jamie has hockey tonight (he’s on the ice now). I started some Man Socks for him, I’m not sure yet what design I’ll use, I’ll get to that after the ribbing. Maybe I’ll design my own man socks. We’ll see soon. I needed a project to cast on to work on until Friday, so I decided to go with the socks that I promised Jamie I’d make.

Wow lucky you! Stephanie was just saying how I should come out to Vancouver to visit her! Should have told me, I could have looked into tickets and **maybe** arranged something too! Aw well!

The hat looks good on Mack! Such a cutie!
