hi

i bought 400g of pale blus with white fliecks in it yarn over the weekend, i haven't a clue what to do with it now i have it. i thought i'd be able to find a pattern in my file, but nothing is jumping out at me.

if anyone has any ideas i'd love to have a look, i want to make something for my 3 year old son for the spring/summer (yes i'm now that far infront now lol)

any ideas would be really grzatfully recieved

susi (who is desperate for something to knit as i finished my last project last week and chomping at the bit to start again)

You could try something with this sweater calculator, either a pullover or a cardigan

http://www.woolworks.org/patterns/raglan.html

Or this one

www.knittingfool.com

Also this book

The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns: Basic Designs in Multiple Sizes & Gauges (http://www.amazon.com/Knitters-Handy-Book-Patterns-Multiple/dp/1931499047) has you-fill-in-the-gauge/size formulas for vests, sweaters, and cardigans in child sizes starting at 2-4

or

The Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns: Basic Designs in Multiple Sizes & Gauges (http://www.amazon.com/Knitters-Handy-Book-Sweater-Patterns/dp/1931499438/sr=1-1/qid=1163092803/ref=sr_1_1/002-6688220-7228831?ie=UTF8&s=books)

I have the first book (but haven't knitted anything from it yet), but I haven't seen the second one. You might be able to find them at your local library or order through interlibrary loan.
