After having knit the baby to be a blanket, Felix asked me to knit her something with the rest of the green wool. Having knit the snake and the baby blanket in said green wool, I was getting a bit fed up of it, but I couldn’t say no to her request.
So after having a look, it was settled on a cat jumper.
Then Engel took an interest and declared she and the baby to be should have matching jumpers. Yes. The dreaded matching jumpers.
Seeing his eager happy face, and then Felix’s excited face (she is too young to understand the horror of matching jumpers, so we can excuse her) I caved in.
I knew there wouldn’t be enough green to do both, but with a few tweaks and some blue…
This is Felix’s creation. It’s based on the free Ravelry pattern ‘Cat’s Meow Pullover‘ by Amy Bahrt. Minus the striped sleeves. And the cat had to be black, not ginger, so that it was a Dashie cat jumper. Dashie is Felix’s cat.
And this is baby to be’s creation. It’s based on the free Ravelry pattern ‘Children’s Bear Sweater’ also by Amy Bahrt. Except I took the bear off and put the cat on instead. And also, no stripy sleeves.
You can tell where I ran out of green, but I had already intended on a blue button flap (another addition of mine to the pattern to make getting it on baby to be easier) so it wasn’t a huge loss.
For playing chicken with wool, I didn’t come out too badly.
But that green is no more, so my next project can’t be green! Mwahahaha!!!!!!
Hmm…Speaking of chickens, I may just make those next…
