I sure know where mine was. It was walking back and forth to the oven, flipping a baby sweater to keep it from burning.
Crazy just couldn't wait for the sweater to air dry. I told crazy to be patient, but crazy said no. Crazy remembered back in the day, drying socks and panties ghetto style. Crazy figured with the oven on 350, and if it kept a close watch, what harm could be done?
I warned crazy that if it didn't go to bed I would kick its ass. Crazy gave me a crazy look, and I backed down, 'cause I know crazy fight dirty. Crazy went on about its business, drying the sweater, knitting another project, hanging around The Rav until 4. The last time crazy checked the sweater, it looked at me and said, This sweater needs something, right now. What could it possibly need at 4am in the morning? I asked crazy. Embroidery, that's what, crazy said back. Crazy thought it needed a daisy chain, but crazy wasn't sure how to do one, and crazy had never embroidered on knitting before. I'm sleepy, I told crazy, but not too loudly because I didn't want that look again. Shhh, it said, tapping away on the computer. Here, here's a tutorial, right here.
First crazy sewed on the buttons. Then crazy got to work on the daisy chain. (It thought it was pretty clever for putting a button in the center.) Crazy didn't take its crazy self to bed until 6am this morning.
Here's a peek at something else crazy started last night.
Anti-propagandist note: Crazy might recommend you block a sweater this way, but I don't. I'm pretty sure the sweater lost about a 1/2" that it wouldn't have lost if crazy hadn't baked it. Don't let crazy get to talking to you about superwash. Superwash is still wool, and wool and baking don't mix.
Raglan Sleeve Easy Baby Sweater: I used this pattern because it doesn't call for much yarn. I cast on for the largest size, knowing the sweater wouldn't come out that big. The pattern's math is off, so I had to add a couple of extra stitches to make it work out. I also veered when picking up stitches for the sleeves.
Size: It's a crap shoot. 3-6 months? I need to get some baby-sized dolls or something.
