FO Friday – Freddy, Jr.

My little Freddy Krueger sweater is done and I love it!  The thought of an inappropriately dressed toddler cracks me up!  Of course, this could just be a christmas sweater.  It doesn’t necessarily have to be the scariest sweater of all time.

The scariest part of this sweater:  it’s acrylic!?!?  It’s sort of a no brainer for a kid sweater but I thumb my nose at standards and convention.  Kids can wear wool too.  There was a time when acrylic didn’t exist…kids had to wear wool.  I think everyone should wear wool.  Wool is magic.

No need for ranting though.  Acrylic was just what the doctor ordered here.

This time, I wanted very specific colors and they were most easily found in Berroco Comfort, a 50% acrylic/50% nylon blend.  I really enjoyed working with it.  It’s very loosely spun, so I suspect some people call it splitty.  Mostly, it’s soft and drapey.  I enjoyed it.

I’ve even wished I was doing an adult size because I kinda wanna wear this!  It’s just too good not to.

And it’s ready just in time for the  Prospect High Arts & Crafts Faire!  Next weekend, in Saratoga, Ca.  It’s my first craft fair so I have no idea what to expect!  I’m feeling well prepared though!  If you’re in the area, c’mon by and say hello!

The Freddy sweater will be for sale, along with my Etsy stock and lots of shawls that haven’t made it online yet!  If nothing else, I’m having fun doing inventory…turns out, I have a ton of knitwear that’s never seen the light of day.  Something for everyone…the sheer volume guarantees it!
