Just for you, Laura J.

The details are over on my blog but I'll spill here too. I knit the Hooded Cable coat from Debbie Bliss's book Baby Cashmerino. I substituted the cashmerino for cotton angora (my guy is alergic to wool) on 4mm circular Addi Turbo's in size 3-6. Due to the row count being off and the yarn growing after washing, the finished product was closer to the 6-9 month size but that's okay because so is Alex! Buttons from JoAnn's in North Attleboro, MA... 3 cards with 3 to a card and I used 7 so I sewed the other 2 to the inside of the coat. I used about 8.25 balls of cotton angora and plan to use the 2.75 I have left for mittens. If I missed anything, pop over to my blog and the rest is there.
