The matching boys' size 4 cardigan is 99% finished!
(it needs buttons which I do not have on hand right now!)
The skein repeated the last three colors almost evenly for the sleeves!
I used size 4 needles, Lion Brand Mandala yarn
(with several knots!)
which is a DK weight acrylic yarn.
The pattern I used is Felix's Cardigan by Jacki Kelly of The Complete Fabrication. .
Very easy to read and follow and the best part is the sizing
which is from infant to 6 year old.
Our bird feeder has a blooming sunflower underneath!
It is very pretty but without seeds yet!
It only stand 2' tall at this point but is a very healthy specimen.
I hope it survives a young toddler's attention!
I rearranged the quilt top again this morning!
I decided the thing I really didn't like was all the black patterning being so prominent visually,
so I switched its placement in the 9 patch blocks and that gave the whole quilt a very different appeal!
I'm not thrilled with it, but I am sewing it together (top row is all so far) so I am committed!
It is a much more traditional layout now
but still contemporary in the use of solids.
I'm 99% happy with it!
