Sweaters



Lots of knitting going on.  I made a guess about a baby who hadn't arrived yet... The family has 4 sons and another baby was on the way.  I knit a blue sweater just for him.  To the surprise of the family and most at church a beautiful baby girl came through instead!  Can you imagine the joy and excitement?  The little sweater I knit for her I forgot to take a picture of, so I'll have to ask for one later.  Above are the other little sweaters that were crafted in my spare time.  The one without the hood was an alteration to the pattern I've been using and I came up with it myself.  I was very pleased with the end result.

Right now I'm working on a little something for a certain ballerina for Christmas.  More on that after the celebration.
