Debbie Bliss Knit Experiments
I got the Debbie Bliss pattern book "Baby Knits for Beginners" at Half Price books, and I thought I would try my hand at my first sweater- baby sized of course. I had already made a really cute hat from the book and a pair of legwarmers (of my own creation) out of some leftover yarn I had thrifted, so I thought a sweater would be cute. I started knitting, only to find, whoops- not enough yarn. So, I made a Franken-sweater with one sleeve and the back side pink, and the other side and sleeve yellow. The best part is, the yarns are not the same texture or weight at all, so it really is a Frankie. Despite this, though, think it turned out quite adorable. Now if only Violet would keep the legwarmers on!
