The Monica!


I saw this in Knitty when the spring issue came out & wanted to make it for the wee one. So 2 skeins of Plymouth Fantasy Naturale in hot pink & 1 in lime green later here we are.



Think the wee one likes it?? It needs to be blocked & was done in the round rather than 4 separate pieces. I HATE seaming things when it can easily be done in 1 piece so a little 3rd grade math later (doubled the stitches ) we were up & running.

I'm back to working on my bag for the Spring Felted Bag Exchange & hope to be felting this weekend. I also need to send out my goodies to Mary for the stitch marker swap tomorrow!!

How cute! I would have done it in the round also, it's so much faster. She seems to love it, and I have to admire her footwear. Great job!

I wondered how it would work in the round. As a new knitter I decided to play it safe and do the two pieces. As far as seaming goes it wasn't bad.
