This blog post was supposed to be about something completely different than what it has turned out to be. But sometimes, you just have to be flexible and go with what you have. This week, life has just gotten in the way and I didn’t get my scheduled project finished (so close, but so far). Instead, I ended up working on a birthday present for my daughter to take to a birthday party. It’s a pattern that I have had on my “to do” list for awhile and this was the perfect opportunity (and weather) to complete it! The pattern is the Cuddly Cat Crochet Scoodie by Moogly http://www.mooglyblog.com/cuddly-cat-crochet-scoodie/. When I showed my daughter, she thought it was perfect for her little friend! It was a little challenging in that I (as usual) didn’t quite get the gauge exact, so had to adjust a little as I went. I’m not thrilled with the fit but with the nature of the garment, it doesn’t really matter, it’s just me being a perfectionist. Other than that, it was quite easy to make up, easily done in a weekend, and the nicest part was….my daughter is learning to follow in my crochet footsteps and she made one of the ear insides herself, which makes it an even more personal present for her friend! It was also a great weekend for modelling it as the weather has gone from being roasting hot to cold enough to need a jumper, and she was quite happy to wear the scoodie to keep herself warm during the shoot!
