-mostly random wools from the stash all the way from dk to aran weight.
-size 8 needles – that somewhere in the middle of knitting were stole out of it and then i had a heck of a time figuring out which size needles i was using.
-the border is done in lovely squishy soft top of the lamb worsted by brown sheep. first time i’ve used it and i liked it quite a bit!
-here’s the helpful tutorial about i-cord that i used to figure out how to do the corners, although perhaps going up a needle size like rachel suggested would have been good. blocking would probably fix the little bit of curl, but really, i’m just going to mail it.
i’m really excited to get this to him. totally a labor of love… because i know he’ll love it. and now that my mom’s retired and knitting – she and my dad apparently come to this space. hi mom! hi dad! your christmas presents will soon be on their way.
