Here's my Work In Progress for the Needle and Thread Network. Click on the link and visit the other needleworkers who are taking part. It's always nice to see what others are working on.
It's knitting once again for little Luc. His mom chose the yarn - she didn't like the baby colours they had in the recommended yarns. This one makes its own stripes and as you can see from what's on the needle, the two sleeves that I am knitting at the same time will be different. I figured it would be easy to distinguish what is the front and what is the back of the sweater this way. All you have to remember is what sleeve gets the dark stripe at the cuff and which one is the light one. I am hoping to finish it soon since I have other knitting that I started and should finish up. This one apparently is an easy sweater and I wanted to try out the pattern. Hopefully, next week I will have some quilting to show.
Today I am looking after Arja, a Shih-poo who belongs to my youngest son and his girlfriend. Arja is a bundle of high energy and loves old Baxter and the kitties. They, of course, want nothing to do with her. So, I guess we will be taking lots of walks today.
And 31 years ago today I gave birth to my third child, a little girl we named Maili.
I don't know how many years apart these were taken and the top one is several years old now but I thought it was nice to see.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAILI!!!!
Oh how nice...the pics are lovely...Happy Birthday to your daughter. Happy knitting. I used to knit when my 3 boys were little; but now it makes me tense...lol. The longer I knit; the tighter the stitches get. Oh well; just have to quilt, I guess...lol. Have a wonderful day.ReplyDelete
Your baby sweater will be so cute! I like the colours. I used to tie a small wool bow inside the back neck, you could try that.ReplyDelete

I too enjoy making baby sweaters.ReplyDelete
My 30 year old son's birthday is today as well.
I'm not a lover of the typical 'baby' colours either, so this sweater would be a favourite.ReplyDelete
