JAWS: The Revenge
Wednesday, October 25, 2006

JawsTo prove my hands haven't been completely idle, I give you Lulu's Halloween costume. This year she's going as a shark. Very apropos, since she wants to bite everyone she sees anyway.

I saw the shark sweater in a bargain book I picked up at Barnes & Noble, The Cool Girls Guide to Knitting by Nicki Trench. I didn't really follow the pattern, since I'm basically lazy and would rather do what I already know how to do with my eyes closed, which is follow Wylie's sweater pattern at Red Lipstick. So you could say I used the pattern in the book as a visual reference, with out using the actual pattern. I do that a lot. If I can figure out an easier way to do something, I will do it.
Shark
To make the sweater more shark-like, I added side and tail fins. I think it came out well, although it's a little small. This is the first sweater I knit Lulu this year, so I was a little out of practice. I used Caron Simply Soft yarn. I like the sheen of Simply Soft. I thought it would look a little wet, like Lulushark jumped out of the ocean to chomp on a hapless seal or swimmer.
