Hellloooo and Happy Mother's Day to all you mommies out there and that goes for pet mom's too! Just a quick post to show you a free pattern for an easy peasy summer knit cardigan and a recap of Me Made May week 2!!

My photographer was being quite the comedian
Quick and dirty details:

Fabric: Interlock knit - remnant bin @ Joann's $2.00
Notions: Trim given to me by Granny
Alterations: I made the small and had to widen the sleeves by 5/8 inch
Likes: Quick, easy. Can be made in a couple hours all on your serger
Dislikes: What's not to like???
Wear/Make again: Most def
Time to make: Took me about 4 hours but I don't have a serger and I slipstitched my hem

Day 9..I ended a long and tiring day in this number...
Lisette 2059 blogged here
Another MMM item I've been wearing all week just not out of the house is this towel wrap for my wet hair. You can buy these in the store, I believe they are called Towel Turbies or something like that. I decided to make my own. A lot better than wearing a big ass heavy towel on your head that never stays on anyway. If you'd like a tutorial on this please let me know. I'd be happy to do one.
Hope everyone had a good weekend! Now off to enjoy the fruit/chocolate chip ice cream smoothie my husband is making...This should be interesting because the blender just sounded like it kicked the bucket and I heard my husband say, "What a disaster."
