I knew I wanted to make this for the Bean as soon as I got my copy of Loop-d-Loop. Luckily, I was able to get the last few balls of this wonderful red...not too orange, not too purple. "Just right" as the Three Bears would say. I am not the best at knitting on big needles, but since this is basically done in the round, it was a very quick and easy knit. The hood honestly doesn't serve much of a purpose (a little too big and floppy), but it looks cute.
It is just now starting to warm up a little, so this piece might get some wear soon. Although since the Bean did not INSTRUCT me to make this, I don't know what the chances are that it will actually be worn. She was coerced into posing for these pictures, so we will wait and see if I have to twist her arm to put it on again. The sassy pose below was not a stretch...if you know what I mean.
