I had lots of time to knit over Christmas break. I don't know of anything I like better than some needles and yarn in my hands. This little baby sweater was knit for my pastor's new grandchild. The self striping yarn entertained me completely. "Oh look, a green stripe!" was met with much eye rolling. Oh well. I bought the yarn at a wonderful yarn shop in Mankato... http://www.maryluesyarn.com/
It is springy and delicious. The bear buttons are so sweet. I still have a couple little knit sweaters that were made for my girls. Every time I see them I have to pick them up and smell them... that sweet baby smell.
I made up the tiny hat pattern. Now that I've knit for a few years I do that a lot. Mostly with hats. I've given up on sweaters for myself.
Can you do me a favor? Say a little prayer for my friend's daughter today. Her name is Carly, she is 14 years old and terribly sick. Her family is on my mind at all times right now.
I am so happy to have an open weekend. My husband has asked me to have a belated anniversary date with him. I have a baby shower to attend, and I've got lots of crafting to do.
Don't forget, it's white week next week. I've got lots of pretty projects planned. See you Monday!
