A couple of months ago, my cousin Emily asked me to knit her a little baby sweater to give to her friend who is due to have a baby in April. She decided on the Yoda Baby Sweater and said she would pay for the yarn. I saw a picture of this done in Manos Cotton Stria, and I thought the yarn and the color was perfect, so I went out and bought four skeins. That was way too much. This yarn knits up really nice and the semi-solid colorway is awesome, but, blech, it is not nice to knit with. I don't like cotton in general, and the nubblyness of this yarn was just not really that fun to have in my hands. I really didn't want to have any leftovers of this yarn, so...
...I knit a bunch of accessories to go with the sweater, and used up about 98% of the yarn (I tossed the little leftover ball). I knit a bib with a penguin on it, a hat, and some booties. Every time I finished an accessory I would look at all of the yarn I had leftover and wish it was all gone. But, I powered through the next accessory, and the next. I have a couple more babies to knit for. I think those will definitely be one skein projects!
