I love knitting with cotton. So smooth and soft and the stitches really even themselves out if you have funky tension every now and then. I just knitted up this toddler hoodie in cotton and it came out wonderfully (no pics yet, unfortunately). Easy to knit and didn't take too long. Pattern:
That is fabulous!! I have a question though, is it really that warm?
I'm in WI and we get some pretty frigid temps when it's windy in the winter, and I can't wear hats (seriously, doesn't matter the style of hat, I look like I came off the short bus). So, I was thinking of knitting a cowl-like thing to substitute a winter hat. Love this pattern the best out of the ones I've seen, but I'm just not sure if it'll be warm enough because of the lace.
Might want to check on the French. I swear I remember my french teacher in highschool telling us that je t'adore really doesn't mean i love you. He said it was je t'aime. I think the othe mean I really really really like you. I remember that because it jsut kinda seems opposite, but hey. Worth double checking.
