I finally finished the little sweater I have been working on for Willow. 2nd sweater done! I learned a lot about counting stitches and paying attention while knitting. I do like a challenge and this one gave me just the right amount for this beginning knitter. It isn't quite perfect but I don't think she minds. I want to give cabling a try next... or maybe a shawl for me??
We had such a nice stretch of hot days around here the flowers have come out and a I am scrambling to get the rest of my seeds in the bed. Everything is such a whirl with little ones that my garden plan has gone all to (you know) and I can't remember where I planted things again! Ah well... at least they are in and who doesn't like surprises right?
The baby is so close to walking. I keep saying that but it really is just a matter of her putting one foot in front of the other at this point. It is encouraging when I have a little cheer leader following me around clapping for me all day. And her little curls! I wonder if she will be curly like her dad.
The leaves part of the sweater pattern are little botched in the last row but I'm trying to ignore it. I like the blue and green combo with the seed stitch. It is nice to get another project done.
A good way to use up vintage buttons too! The next one I make waaay bigger in hopes she can wear it for more than a month!
I am also yarning along over here and joining her awesome fossil hunting kit give away. Pretty cool!
