Look how cute!

Sure, Sirdar Snowflake is unpleasant to knit, seam, weave ends in, but....look how cute!

(A special thanks to Walter Bear for modeling!) The details:

Pattern: All in One/Sleeping Bag Pattern, Sirdar # 3928
Yarn: Sirdar Snowflake, Tutti Frutti and White Shimmer (alternating every two rows)
Needles: Size 9
Notes: With alternating the two colors (out of necessity, but I like the effect), there were about a million ends to weave in. It would be nice to modify it to be at least partly in the round, but I wasn't motivated to do that. Picking up and knitting is tricky with this yarn, as is seaming, but the good news is that mistakes don't show at all. Overall, it was a pretty easy, quick pattern, and just so cute I've already forgotten what a pain the Snowflake was.

Another little project I undertook was to organize my bag o' buttons into color-grouped ziploc baggies. This really helped, because I found four matching pink plastic buttons that were perfect for this!

Reading: I finished listening to Sour Puss. It was okay. I'm tempted to get a hard copy to see if I like it any better in print.

Writing: On Chapter 7.

Cooking: Hey, I posted two recipes yesterday. I took the night off :)

Okay, I'm used to my blogs giving me yarn cravings and pattern cravings, but now baby cravings too? Not fair!

I can't wait to see another photo of that adorable bunting in a few months once its intended occupant has arrived!
