Happy Homemade Sew Along Pull-over Parka

I made this top from the Sew Chic Kids book. I decided to use a yellow and white striped knit that I had in my stash (from a $2.97 p/yard table at my local fabric store!). I hadn't really sewn with knits before, so that presented its own set of challenges. I was coming down to the wire with getting it done in time, due to going on vacation during the middle of the sew along - right before the lesson on the hood! Which of course, was where I struggled! So, in hurrying to finish this up tonight, I forgot to do the tie along the bottom. I also accidentally added seam allowance to the fold lines on the back and front pieces, so those are a bit wider than they should be! Lessons learned for next time!!
