My good neighbor Marilyn is going to be a great grandmother to a little girl and her favorite color is lavender and so it made sense since I love to knit baby items for me to knit this sweater for her. The pattern is from knitwits-heaven.com/pretty_baby_sweater.htm., and uses one 4oz skein of worsted weight yarn. I had some yarn in my stash that I used. It is "Spotlight" Classic Elite Yarn made in Italy that I picked up on one of my trips and made of 100% cotton. I used 2 balls of 50gr/92 yards and knit it on #8 needles. It was a very easy pattern and worked up quite fast since the yarn was bigger and the needles bigger.
My life is changing a lot as I have not been working the aide job. Instead I am doing odd jobs for people like cleaning, and last week I wallpapered a bedroom for a friend. A few extra $s to help out the cause. Am working on old projects and new projects for my house and working in my garden too. All the flowers are coming out now and it is taking on a colorful show. Love it.
Hope you all had a great holiday weekend.
