"Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes." -Oscar Wilde
On they way to my parents' house this past friday, I finished the Debbie Bliss toddler hoodie that has taken me ages to get around to finishing. I PROMISED everyone that saw this hoodie that I followed the pattern but it didn't turn out quite how I wanted. The torso was a little short, the arms are slightly too long and the hood, well, let's just say that it made my two-year old look like he was going to be in Jedi knight training. Or it looked like a bucket for carrying extra produce or groceries. I honestly have a hard time following DB's patterns sometimes and I know it's the way I'm reading the pattern. Oh well.
You win some, and you lose some. To be honest, we completely lost it when we tried this on our son. He was scared of the thing and put up a little fight when we wanted to slip this over his head. I can't blame him!
Now I have some great, cream-colored yarn for a new project. Does anyone have any suggestions?
