My next project

Okay, so even though I have a few UFOs (a monkey bag, a shawl, a toddler dress, to name a few, socks), I finished my scarf (pic to come) and feel justified in starting something new. I got my Knit Bits newsletter from Berroco and in their new booklet #285 there is a pattern for an apron/garment called Paron.

I love the look of it and want to make it, but I'm such a cheap skate and don't want the rest of the booklet. So, design one I will. I sat last night sketching out the pattern and measuring myself. I'll be using Bernat Baby Coordinates (R & the kids bought some for my birthday last year), in sky, soft blue & white. I knit up a swatch and calculated the decreases, and God, math is not my strong point, but I got it. And it is just for me, so if it doesn't work out perfectly no biggy.

I'll try to post this one as I go.
