The teddy bear hooded cowls are so popular this fall. I received one order in late summer for four--2 for 2 year olds, 2 for 5 year olds....then she added another 2 year old size. I had already cleaned Michaels' out of Cozy Wool in Mushroom when I first got her order, so she was open to the 3rd small one being in a different colour. When the time came though...I couldn't bring myself to use a different colour. That's what led to that trip to Michaels' with the last "yarn in" report. I wish more people liked the knitted versions of these cowls though--the crocheted ones take so much more yarn!
Sandra thought it was perhaps too small of type.
I carefully wrote the weights of each one down, since the two larger ones were just slightly different sizes. And now can't find that sheet. I do know that it took nearly every yard I had, and what was left wasn't enough to get two matching ears from any of the leftover bits (the dyelots got mixed up with the little bobbins left over). I do know that I bought 8 balls x 127gr = 1016gr, and I'm going to be generous to myself and count it as a neat 1000gr. The kids often take my yarn for projects, or I use bits for things, and there's always all the ends that get trimmed off and aren't accounted for :)
