The Billy Cardi

What does Billy Blanks have to do with anything?  My uppercut, of course!  I was asked by Shannon to get in the boxing ring over at Luvinthemommyhood:

Comfy Sews vs Cozy Knits.

 Who am I fighting for?  Well, we all know the answer to that.
 Not only is it comfy, but it is versatile!  So, hop over to luvinthemommyhood to get the tutorial
and root for the Sews as we duke it out!

  4. Uhhh, that's kind of fabulous. I could make it this weekend, wear it over my gigantic protruding belly for a few days (hey, its called positive thinking)and then smuggle my moo-cow-bits around under it after that. And it would flutter nicely over my empty-baby-house tummy. Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
    Clearly this cardigan would be doing so much better than my post-baby body-image does. (it's called *realism*)

  8. I love this cardi. I'd recently been trying to figure out (in my mind) how to create a pattern like this. Thanks so much for figuring it out for me.

    By the way, I have some of that same ribbed knit. I love the moss green color.

  20. Katy, thanks for the kind words - and I know what you mean about machines and their personalities... mine is much like a cantankerous old woman, but she keeps on pulling through for me :)
