In the grand scheme of things, I suppose I should be pleased. I took the pattern for Cobblestone that I knit for Sam, took some measurements from Aidan, and did the math. Then I knit a mini version. Cute, isn’t it?
The problem is when I took Aidan’s measurements and plugged them into my equations, I forgot the all important *ease*. His wrists measured 5″…so do the cuffs. Skin-tight is sometimes good for girl’s garments, but not for a six-year-old boy.
Do you hear the little froggy? I’m going to rip back the yoke and re-knit the sleeves. The body is fine. I just can’t face it yet. Besides, it is currently too darned hot to sit with a big pile of wool in my lap. So, I’ll stick with socks for the moment and let you know how this turns out the second time around.
