Yesterday I finally got started on the sweater for Cooper. DH is a little worried that the color is a bit girly. I think it will be fine. It's varying shades of blue, but mostly on the lighter side. I actually wanted a darker blue with some teal in it, but I couldn't get enough balls of the same dye lot grrrrrr. So I went with the lighter.
I'm a little confused, as the pattern says I need straight and circular needles, but doesn't specify where I am to use each of them? Maybe it's just for personal preference? The back, front and sleeves are all knit separately and sewn together.
Oh well. I started on the straight needles because that's what I know lol.
I told Sierra that if I do okay and don't pull all my hair out making it, then I'd try and make her one afterwards.
