Robin Hood Sweater
I love it when I get to craft for Bug. It seems like there are so many different things you can make for girls... headbands and barrettes, skirts and bracelets. Coming up with ideas for boys that actually excites them is a bit more challenging. I mentioned before I bought the awesome book Fairy Tale Knits. I made the Magic Carpet afghan for Meghan's baby shower. Beautiful. I then had Aidan go through the book and see if there was anything he'd like me to knit for him. He loved 4 of the sweaters for boys, with this Robin Hood Sweater being his favorite. He was so excited when I gave it to him on Thursday. It was 85 degrees outside. He put it on and refused to take it off! I used the the Cascade 220 yarns suggested in the book. Definitely the way to go! It's wooly wonderfulness is obvious. I've already started on the next sweater... a gray wool that resembles chain mail. He's requested I add a hood that looks like a helmet. I will have to give this some thought! And don't you think Robin Hood needs a quiver?
