One rainy afternoon I was hanging out with the BGITWWW. We read books, watched a movie, baked cookies, had a tea party... all the fun things we normally do to entertain. But the most fun we had I think is when the BGITWWW sat on my lap and surfed the internet for a new sweater pattern and yarn.
She chose a Debbie Bliss moss and rib stitch sweater pattern from the Wish you Were Here book (on sale). She decided on a pink sweater. She picked Rowan's All Season Cotton yarn in pink melange from the UK: 10 skeins in an unopened bag for under $20 with free shipping. The yarn arrived in three days. The pattern book took a week. I think I spent 3 weeks knitting and seaming.

The raglan sweater and hat was knit for a baby boy using Debbie Bliss's raglan sweater pattern from the Baby Knits book. I used 3 skeins of Cascade Cash Vero to knit the sweater and one skein to knit the hat. I had this knit up in a less then a week. It was a gift to his proud Grandmother actually, so all the more fun to knit up.
