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 :)
