The Ladybug Jacket has her spots!
The pattern calls for knitting black bobbles, but I wasn't overly fond of the look of them (nor the thought of knitting them). So I decide to knit the spots and sew them on. Details on how to do this are on my Ravelry project page. It probably took longer than the bobbles would have, but I like the final product so much better.
It was a nice little pattern to knit - very simple and the results are darling. You could easily leave the spots off and knit it in any colour you liked. I knit this in Fat Cat in Coal and Cherry. I'm so spoiled with our yarn - I don't think I'll work with acrylic for kid's garments ever again!
Nora's birthday is tomorrow (it's hard to believe it's been a full year!), but I won't get it to her Daddy until next week. I'm sure I'll have pictures of her wearing it soon after.
Now... it's back to the Business Casual socks... one by one, stitch by stitch, I'm getting through those WIPs!
