Butterfly Cardigan

Easy top down cardigan. No seams - no ends to sew in - was a breeze to do. First successful top down and I think I'm hooked. Next will be a top down cardigan for Mom.

Baby Wallaby

Baby Wallaby sweater with a small collar instead of a hood. The color is really a deep purple but it didn't come out in the picture. Still need to block but am happy with the little pouch.

It there a rule of thumb for how long yarn should be to complete a row of stickinette - like 4 times the lenght of the knitted piece? I'm trying to only attach new balls at the end of rows.
