Mandy Moose

Well, Marvin Moose needed a friend, so I made the girl moose, as well, from the pattern (Thank-you GraceAndYarn. This is a wonderful pattern and works up quickly.
I did edit the pattern a wee bit, adding a row of "crab stitch" for the bottom and neckline of the shirt. I love the effect of this stitch. 

While Marvin was made with Lion's Brand 24/7 yarn and a 2.5 mm hook, Mandy Moose was made with my new yarn that I ordered from Turkey: Camilla6/4 and a 2.00 mm hook. 

Buying the yarn from Turkey was a risk as it was sight unseen but I am thrilled with it. It is my favourite cotton yarn to work with. The threads stay together and have just the right amount of sheen, in my opinion.
