Wool for Our Snow Day :)



For the last several days I've been working on this sweet little set for Penny. She was in desperate need of a wee woolen hat and a wee woolen cardigan. :) 


I finished this set last night and this morning snow started to fall on Alabama. We didn't get much, not really even enough for it to be pretty, but the kids had a good time scraping it off the cars and throwing it around. It made me feel like I finished just in time for Winter. 
 I used free patterns for both the bonnet and cardigan. You can see my Ravelry notes HERE and HERE. The cardigan is a very modified version of the Five Hour Baby Sweater, so I included all of my notes on my Ravelry page. 


I added the gold band to the bottom of the sweater, because I was running low on beige yarn, and now that's one of my favorite parts! I finished this with just inches of yarn left! 


Penny likes her new winter get-up, and she looks adorable in it, so mama's happy. Now on to the next knitting project! xo, Sam
