My WIPs includ 3 shawls, 1 cowl, a hat and 1 pair of mitts. Also on that list are a few swap items. My knitting itinerary through October is chok full. :)
Today I'm sharing something that was quick and gratifying and just what I needed at the time.
I knit Lovebug a set of Cabled Strap Covers, by Melissa Schaschwary, for her carseat. The poor dear had red marks from her straps all the time. She's already constantly miserable in her seat and I though this would grant her a bit more comfort.
The pattern uses bobbles and buttonholes to attach the covers to the straps but I've found this ineffective. There is a certain amount of wiggling and fussing we go through before Little Miss is secured. And it's inevitable that each time she's strapped in, I'm reattaching the covers. This gets old, fast. So I will be searching for some larger, flat buttons that can withstand the push and pull and friction the straps get, while still laying flat against Lovebug's shoulders.
