It’s a spud, I mean, dud. I have finished the Tot Surprise. Surprise it did, in that it is not cute like I remembered the pattern to be. The cotton is way too saggy with blocking – maybe I’ll be wild and run it through the washing machine and dryer and see if we can tighten things up. The colors, which I can blame only myself for, are not working together. I see now that the hot yellow and orange just aren’t right with the cool, grey tones of the green and grey. Well, at least I gained some intarsia experience on it and reminded myself that I really don’t like knitting with cotton, except for dishcloths.
I hope your knitting is going better. This sweater is going to charity. I can’t even bring myself to give it as a gift, but at least it is soft cotton and will keep some baby warm with good intentions.
Happy Vernal Equinox,
