smock, smock, smock...i like smock...

So, remember when I mentioned somewhere on this blog about all that Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® that I purchased on sale a while back? Well, I still have some left and I'm always trying to find quick, easy, and fun projects to do just so I can get through all that yarn. My latest creation you ask? Why it's a one skein knitted "smock" for a two year old. And when I mean one skein, I really mean one skein. I literally knitted to the last yard; including unraveling my gauge swatch to finish the pocket.

What's really fun about this project is the embellishing part. I added a pocket, some crocheted flowers, and some embroidery, but the ideas are limitless. An knitted owl on a pocket would be super cute; check out Ysolda Teague's pattern on her blog at Or maybe some fun intarsia on the front. Even just an initial on the upper left hand side ala Laverne would be pretty cool. Oh, the creative choices...they're swirling in my head!

I'm including it as a free pattern below (I'm calling them notes really) for nat and callie knits and I can't wait to see what gets made and shown on raverly...yay! Enjoy!
