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.

  4. I've had lots of trouble with Blogger, lately, Peggy. I can finally sign in to mine and post. It's so good to see this beautiful sweater here! The lavender color is wonderful - so soft and great work as usual!

  5. Your little knitted sweater is just the sweetest in this precious lavender shade. It is good to stay busy and sounds like you are doing just that. I am not much good at wallpapering but Mr. C is. Hmmm...we have not wallpapered in years...maybe I could come up with yet another project for him...
    Happy flower viewing and smelling...
