Knitting Up A Storm!

Friday, November 09, 2007

I really have to say that I don't like sewing on buttons (even though I just bought a whackload), but the more I do it, the easier it gets.

Before I leave on Sunday for PUNTA CANA, with my friend (no kids, no husband), I wanted to finish this sweater:


Isn't it the cutest thing? I used the Pure & Simple Top Down Baby Sweater pattern, a free one to boot. I made a few mods to the pattern. I put in button holes, because I am not a fan of the i-cord ties. They scream 'hand-made'. I also knit two stitches between each decrease instead of one, and the obvious thing I did was knit a collar instead of a hood. All in all, I think it has turned out okay!

I finally uploaded pictures from Halloween. Here is a picture of my cheerless leader:

Halloween 2007

They should be scowling, but I like the smiles much more.

I will be back one week from Sunday. Enjoy your week, I know I will.
