C'est Fini!


Jacket Pattern: Baby Kimono by Kristin Spurkland. InterWeave KNITS mag., Summer 2005, page 99.

Yarn: Patons 100% Cotton DK. I tried to look for a link to this yarn, but I couldn't find one. It must be discontinued. After all, I did buy the yarn at the second-hand shop for $0.99 CAD for 3.5 balls (50g each). I used about 125g for both pieces.

Needles: 3.5mm Takumi Bamboo Premium, yuk! My theory, cellulosic yarn on cellulosic needles, not good for speed knitting.

Bear Pattern: Itty Bitty Bears by Evelyn A. Clark, but extremely modified by me. InterWeave KNITS mag., Summer 2005, page 101.

Yarn: same as above

Needles: I won't even go there.

I'm just glad that Itty Bitty looks more like a bear than a pig.

The jacket and bear were given on Saturday night and was well received.
