My Bunny Hop Project

Hello everyone, I'm Gina from San Clemente CA.

I purchased this gorgeous yarn a couple months ago without any idea what I was going to use it for...maybe socks. So there it has been sitting in my stash, waiting for me to do something with it. Two weekends ago I remember I have a baby shower the next weekend and no gift. I had wanted to knit something. I look in my stash and BBF jumps out and says "Use Me, Use Me". Ok, onto the internet to search for a pattern. I find a cute little cardigan, a perfect match for this yarn and a baby boy. At some point while I was ignoring my little boy ... er I mean searching the internet. He decides he's going to help me wind this hank of yarn. What he did was make a giant wad of yarn. After 3 hours of untangling and winding up my BBF yarn I decided that this yarn was too yummy and I had invested too much time into it to just give it away.

I need another project on the needles like I need another hole in my head, but I wanted to join the fun. I've never done KAL. My BBF yarn in Poseidon is now going to become a lacy stole for me. I can't wait!! I love working with this yarn, the amazing colors are my favorite!

Good choice -- why waste this yarn on a baby???? He would just grow out of it, then it would get wrapped in tissue paper, put away, and . . . that would be a tragedy for that skein.

I found this pattern here My BBF yarn is smaller gauge than what the pattern suggests, but it's turning out quite nicely. The pattern is just a 4 sticth repeat. I'm using size 8 needles. Between the simple pattern and larger needles this project is growing quickly.

So happy I decided to use some left over knipicks sock yarn for the baby sweater and kept this for myself!!!
