The Wonderful Wallaby is a great pattern, don't get me wrong, But there is only so much stockinette a person can handle before they go a little mad, and somewhere in the sleeves I just didn't want to go on anymore.
But I powered through, and here we are - a kid very happy to be wearing a sweater his mom made for him.
He picked out the colors and watched it come together, so he has some idea of the work involved. And now he can match his little brother!
I made the child's size 10 for my 6-almost-7 year old, and it used 804 yards of Encore Worsted (a washable acrylic/wool blend).
