To knit it or sell it?

I bought 8 oz Mosaic Moon MMR with 2oz of trim expecting to knit up some woolies. However, DH is the stay at home parent and just isn't feeling the wooly love.

I'm a beginner knitter and am trying to decide whether to knit something else with it or just sell it. What would you knit (for a 2 year old) with it if you were in love with the color, but didn't want woolies?

you can use wool longies as more than a diaper cover DD wears longies 75% of the time and she is in aio's 95% of the time under them

I actually think sweaters are easier than longies. Although, unless you are making a pullover, you need to purl. I think sweaters get more wear too.

This one looks super easy and is really cute.

I think this one was written to show off the colorway.

Re: To knit it or sell it?

I also say sweater!! This sweater is a great one. I was a tester for her.

The first reddish one you see is the one I knit. In the first picture, it is on my son in the upper right corner!

You do have to knit a row, purl a row, knit, purl... but it's still a quick work up!
I also made a pink one for a friend of mine. Each one took me about a week to make and I'm a fairly slow knitter.

I think I am going to try a sweater. Do you think I have enough yarn to complete one?
