#63 - Sesame Street Flannel Jammies

Made for: Little Man

Pattern: Simplicity 5874; size 3 for pants and size 4 for top.

Fabric: Cotton flannel from Hancock Fabrics, purchased in 2005 and stashed for this purpose. Little Man loves Sesame Street and was very excited about this fabric.

Notes: Fun, fast, decent pattern that I've used several times now. The only problem is the pattern sizing. Every piece is very wide, and the pants are long in the seat and the legs. I just take the extra length in the hem and the waistband. I didn't use the ribbing at the ankle. Note to self: knit rib is a pain in the ass to sew, but alas, makes a lovely finished look.

#62 - Besotted

Made for: The Red Scarf Project 2007

Pattern: Besotted

Yarn: every bit of 3 balls of KnitPicks Swish Superwash in Red Pepper.

Needles: Size 5? straights

Gauge: ??

Notes: Great pattern. Yarn was a teeny bit splitty, but surprisingly soft for a superwash. Great color. I meant to add short fringe, but decided against it post-blocking. Also surprising for a superwash, the yarn blocked out really well.
