This is the bolero from the cover of Erika Knight's Simple Knits for Little Cherubs - a cloying title, but a nice book.  This pattern wasn't so nice, though, in one respect - there's a major error on the sleeves, which the knitter is instructed to make twice as long as they really should be.  Once that was worked out, though, I was able to spend my time being impressed with the construction, which is simple but really clever.  The front panels are knit separately and then joined so that all the seams are down the sides.  The yarn is random stash yarn that wasn't labeled when it was given to me, but I suspect it of being Lion Brand Wool-Ease.

Cute!  Thanks for the warning on the error for the sleeves....I'll mark that in my book!

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.
