Holy Crap!! I was almost done posting this when my kid hit a button and BOOM it's all gone, so I walk away in frustration and my other kid has dumped out the sock bucket and was sitting there hiding pennies in her diaper! Yeesh.
Anyway, I got the pattern for this from a cool site called patternrescue.com. I love vintage and I looovvve knit, so this was perfect. It ended up being way too big, but it will probably last forever or atleast through her younger sister.
I finished the edges with plain old serging. Partly because I am lazy but mostly because my 1 yr old climbed on table to watch and was getting into stuff and swingin the chandilier, not from it but that was coming I could see it in his eyes. THEN the older kids were screamin like wild banshees because they were practicing the fine art of wedgie giving by having a fierce wedgie contest. You think I am making this up...I couldn't begin to make up the kinda stuff these kids do...anywho...here it is:
It's not as crooked as it looks, it was kinda hangin to one side. It was late,I was grouchy and the kid was HYYYYPERRRR, I wasn't goinig to mess with it.
I like the oversized hood.
Comment or criticisms welcome. Oh yeah, and thanks for letting me vent!
