Today I had a wonderful breakfast with a friend. I wanted to give her this sweater I knit for her soon to be grandaughter. I finished making it last week and was so excited to be able to give it to her.

I don't consider myself an expert or even a very experienced knitter, but I love to make baby sweaters. One year I made 6 sweaters to give to the grandkids for Christmas. They all wore them which really surprised me, but gave me the confidence to keep trying to get better.

My sister is trying to convince me that socks are a must but I cannot seem to get past the cuff. I really haven't tried. Another hurdle. It sits there ready to be tackled and I just keep looking at it and saying, ahhhhhhhhhhhhh not today. Maybe today for real? I have been told that once I get the nack of them I will forever love them. Meanwhile I keep wondering who I can give this ONE sock to when I get it done. I can't imagine doing another one to match no less doing another one.

Well that's it for now. For all those knitters out there, keep inspiring and I'll keep knitting.


  1. Peggy! I can't thank you enough for such a gesture of caring and friendship. I ADORE the sweater you knitted for Sophia and I can't wait to present this to my son and DIL. It is so beautiful and I just know they will love it as much as I do! Thank you! I'm so happy you posted this! xxoo

  2. What an adorable sweater, Peggy. I just love the color as well as the detailed collar and cuffs. Absolutely darling.

  3. So very beautiful. You are a wonderful knitter Peggy. Love the colour and that lovely edging (is that crocheted or knitted). Gorgeous pattern.

  4. Peggy, I am a friend of Marilyn's and saw your sweater on her blog and thought I would take a visit and let you know what a PRECIOUS gift you have given! I Love the sweater and the sweet details! What a talent you are!!!!!!!!! Wonderful!

    As I browsed your blog, all the fun artwork and THAT chicken soup......I wanted to come over and have a bowl myself. Looks delish......and I have been fighting a cold for 3 weeks! Seems like that could be the answer! :0)

    Enjoy your friendship with Marilyn and Kerri and all you girls that get to spend artful and caring times together. I wish I lived closer!
    Hugs,Patti (from WI)

  5. I'm a friend of Marilyn's, too, and also met you at Stampassion. Beautiful sweater, Peggy!! My favorite socks that I own were knitted for me by one of my daughters. She made them with a cotton yarn and I just love them!

  6. Hi Peggy, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your lovely comments.
    Thanks also for the offer of the pattern for that gorgeous sweater...I would love it if you dont mind sharing. My brother and his wife are expecting a little girl in January so this would be perfect.
    I know what you mean about the knitted socks...I love the look of them, but I'm not brave enough to try and knit some yet. Maybe next winter???

    Take care and hope you are having a creative week.
