Psst! Guess what!

L.’s sweater is complete!  I was literally on a knitting marathon the past 2 nights (have I mentioned before that I’m rather a slow knitter, knitting is getting faster, but purling seems to take forever!).  But it’s done and I’m happy with it, but more importantly, L. is happy with it.

And God bless her little heart, she knows that when I finish something handmade, we go outside and take pictures of it (mainly because I want to spare all of you from tornado that seems to run through my house occassionally).  This particular 85 degree humid hot weather day was no exception to her.  She had me put it on her and outside we went.  Hence only one picture of her wearing the sweater.  Why would I make her a sweater in the summer time you ask?  Because I wanted it down by time the cool weather hit here in Ohio, plus I also have to make K. a cardigan, so I was thinking ahead.

Buttons for the pullover are from my Grandmother’s stash that she gave me a while back.  “Perfectly purple” as L. would call them, and strangely enough, I had the exact color of thread to stitch them on with (don’t ask how that happened).

Pattern:  Child’s Placket-Neck Pullover from Last Minute Knitted Gifts (with free PDF link from Purlsoho.com)
Size: 4-6
Yarn:  5 skeins of Knit Picks Cotlin in Lantana
Needles:  Options Interchangeable size 7 24″ and size 7 DPN

Now to take a little break before I begin on K.’s cardigan, I think I’m going to make these adorable little slippers from My Longest Year for both of the girls.

    Thanks Tara! My Grandmother gave me some buttons from her stash a while ago and I’ve been trying to use them up in projects I make for the girls.

    Thanks Lisa! It’s almost as if all this was meant to be. Very, very strange how I had the exact color of buttons and thread to match the sweater.
