I'm so disappointed with mine. :( except for the buttons I found.



Luckily, I love the little hat that I made last night.



Hopefully, the hat will help to make up for all the flaws in the jacket.



even if they do appear to be made for babies a year apart in age.
I am such a dork. But I wil make another of the jackets - larger and with wool this time - and it shall be an improvement over this one.


edited to add a link to the hat pattern.

I think it's adorable! I know how it is though, we see the "flaws" and they seem huge even if in reality no one else would notice. That hat is so cute and makes a cute set!

It is ADORABLE! And the hat makes it complete! And Jan is right - no one will ever notice what you can see.

Omigosh! He is adorable and the sweater looks wonderful on him!!

I just finished the i-cord bind off on my first sweater. It still needs buttons though. I also finished knitting the second one and I'm debating how to finish it..with i-cord or not. :thinking:

Thanks, Jan. He's the bee's knees!

I'd love to see the finished first one. I attempted the i-cord bind off and failed miserably. So I resorted to the three needle bind off, which I believe would've looked better on the outside than on the inside. It's how I plan to finish the next one. Also, I'll include only three buttons next time, or perhaps only one.
