Here is the result of my very first attempt at spinning enough of the same thing in order to make a garment bigger than a pair of socks. It started out as a rather tiny shrug and kept growing as I happily discovered I had more than enough yarn to make an entire full length raglan cardigan. I even have enough to make longer sleeves but I am rather liking the shorter ones. It has that Baby Surprise Jacket look that I think works well with the variegated colors in the yarn. I also added wider front bands to get some additional closure as I am not a big fan of having the girls on display even if the girls are nothing to brag about. The cute little thing actually fits but I have nothing to put under it at the moment that looks right-so the mug shot is a long ways off yet.
