A Wallaby for Easter

I finished knitting the Wonderful Wallaby for Christopher. I like the way the colors took on a pattern of their own. The sweater required 2 skeins and about a yard more from the third skein. Had I ripped out and reused my gauge swatch I would not have had to open the third skein. I enjoyed knitting with the yarn and for less than $5, I think it made a very nice hoodie. I found a couple cute finger puppets for the pockets. I imagine, though, that the pockets will have cars in them most of the time Christopher wears the sweater. I look forward to Easter when I will give him the sweater.
