I managed to successfully recover from the knitting disaster. Whew! I had to rip out a lot of rows. I was worried I wouldn't be able to figure out what row I needed to restart with, because knitting boggles me like that, but after a couple of false starts, I was on my way. I tell myself that recovering from mistakes only gives me more experience and makes me a better knitter. Right?
I LOVE the yarn I used! Malabrigo Arroyo in the color Azules. It's so soft and cuddly, and the varying shades of blues and the hint of purple give it a nice dimension.
The pattern is free and can be found here. (Edited: I've just been notified this link is dead. Pattern is also free on Ravelry here.)
Looks like we still have plenty of winter left, so I should get lots of use out of this in the next couple of months. Um, yay, I think?
For my next knitting project, I am going to attempt to make a striped toddler-sized hat for my great niece. Wish me luck!
P.S. I set the photo to appear as "large". If it is too big that you only see part of it on your screen, please let me know.
