FO: "Mendocino" Jacket for Laila!
Hi!

As some of you know, many of us KH Yarnaholics have started a 2008 Year of the Stash thread! We invite you to join us on the Stash Train!

In view of that, I am determined to use up a bunch of my kid yarn!
I purchased 30 skeins of Rowan All Seasons Cotton last year...or the year before ...who knows why!

Fiona's "Posey" took 6 of the 30 skeins. (Fiona is 8 yrs old)
Laila's "Mendocino" jacket took 9 skeins. (Laila is 5 yrs old)

So I still have 15 left! Ack! I had originally purchased this yarn with them in mind...and I have two additional patterns for them with this yarn...two pullovers are next.

Well, here is Laila's jacket...called Mendocino, a pattern in The Children's Collection by A & J Starmore. I read on a Ravelry thread that this book is out of print. I don't know for sure.



The Back is nice! I loved doing these unusual cables.

Here are the two "Sister Sweaters" together. Fiona is 8, Laila is 5.

What beautiful sweaters! Nice job!!!

P.S. I could try to squeeze into a kid size...if you need someone to knit for.

Thanks Auburn Chick! A lady over at Ravelry somehow figured out how to conform the pattern to adult sizing! Some knitters are so resourceful! Me...I tend to be a follower! I just follow the pattern most of the time. I can "tinker" with the pattern, but don't usually make huge changes!

Thanks again EVERYONE!

I can't decide if I want to give the girls these two sweaters now, or wait til the DOZEN are all done. I kinda like having them around to look at! Kinda lhow you feel when you are baking cookies! Ya just love looking at them all spread out over the countertops!

Well, I know you are a fast knitter, but if I was their mom, I sure would love being able to dress them up in those nice, cozy clothes. Just take lots of pictures, blow them up bigger, and stick them on the counter if you want to ogle them.
