For those times when I don't feel like slogging away on the Sandy cardigan (oddly enough, occurring more and more frequently), I'm trying out an idea for a toddler boy's sweater.I went with a drop-shoulder style - for ease in shaping - and a placket yoke, for ease in dressing said toddler boy. Sleeves and lower body are done in a simple hdc through the back loop on every row, and the yoke is sc, chain 1. Both very simple stitches, but I think they combine nicely. It's working up fairly quickly in a sport weight washable wool blend. In fact, it's going so quickly that I'll need another 'Sandy procrastination" project soon. Maybe one of the shawl patterns that I just ordered from Heirloom Knitting (Sharon Miller), hmmmm?
