I'm so proud! It's my first item that isn't a scarf or shawl or dishcloth- and made out of my own special Kool-aid dyed yarn!
I highly recommend this pattern for beginners. I was so excited about dyeing my own yarn for my Project spectrum/afghans for Afghans newborns projects this month (whew- what a mouthful), but I looked at my schedule and had to be realistic. So I've ordered some orange wool and will just focus on knitting what I can in the time I can spare, and I'll have to play with colors when I have more time.
