Ballet T-Shirt, A quickie

This is a real quickie. Took all of two evenings in bed after the kids had gone to sleep. If you want to experiment with manipulating sizes of patterns, this one would be great to get you started. Teddy Bear measures 23" around the chest.

Unfortunately, this top won't make it into the school pictures. Teddy Bear woke up with a horrible "crook" in her neck. I thought she had a sinus infection or meningitis or something. The doctor said that there were no major knots in her neck and recommended Motrin and warm compresses. Let Teddy Bear tell it, someone was trying to decapitate her. She had me very scared with her crying. She was inconsolable. She's doing better now, I had to come into the office for a little while.

Can you tell which side hurts?



Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece, Held Double. Not even two full skeins were used.
Color: Ya'll know I have a hard time keeping track of this for some reason.
Needles: Size 11
Size: Made to fit chest size 23". One extra increase included to eliminate cropped look.

Thanks for the complements, ya'll.

To update you. Teddy Bear's neck has gotten better but she still complains every once in a while. I still got her on Motrin.

She's still walking with her head tilted to one side at times. She won't tolerate any warm compresses. Just doesn't want to be bothered. I massage it whenever she lets me.

Aww poor sight! Glad to hear she's feeling a bit better. Neck pain can be a real pain in the tush! ;-)

I love the top you made her! She looks adorable in it. :-)
