I am finally done with this sweater I started in the spring, I actually finished the knitting at the beginning of summer, but I need to do the button band and sew on the buttons and for some reason I couldn't bring myself to do it. It is for my super nice sister Sally. Sally has always been there for me! She even let my family and me live in her basement for free while we transitioned between selling our old house and building our new house. So I thought it would be nice to knit her a sweater to say thank you. I am not sure if it turned out the way it was supposed to, but I still think it is cute. The pattern can be found at sweaterbabe, I have a link on the side bar. The yarn is from knit Picks also a link is on the side bar.
This was a really fun pattern to knit. I especially liked not needing to do a lot of sewing at the end.
These next two patterns can be found on Petite Purls (again link on side bar). And also with knit picks yarns. Can you tell I love knit picks?
Sophia is a funny poser, she doesn't hold still and I am not good enough of a photographer to catch her naturally. Anyway this sweater was super fast with bulky yarn and cheap because the yarn was on clearance and I only used 1 1/2 skeins. She had fun picking her own buttons.
Milo did not want to pose for me at all so these pictures are kinda funny with the tv in them, but oh well. This pattern was really fun to knit as well, it was quick and small yet kept my attention with the cables. I actually alternated knitting this vest and Sophia's sweater depending on my mood and if Nate and I were watching tv I would knit Sophia's and if I was just chilling while the kids played I knitted Milo's.
Now on to new projects. I think I will start some stash busting.
