Two Down! (Almost)

As the title of this entry suggests… I just have to sew the seams and weave in the ends of sweater number two. I’m going to do that later on this week. 🙂

So I now have number 3 on the needles. This SHOULD go quicker since it’s a smaller size.

My little man has been bugging the heck out of me to make his. I think I’m going to do his a little different. I’m thinking all green and yellow with checks on the sleeves rather than stripes. I may leave them solid… We’ll see when the time comes. I also found a graph for the actual emblem. So…

I picked up some pretty cool Christmas yarn the other day. I also acquired a pattern for a tea cozy. I’ve never worked with this sort of yarn, so I’m excited. It’ll be taking a back seat for awhile though.

I LOVE being busy!!!!


Summer, sunsets and my boy

I just have one more sleeve left on tractor sweater number 2 (of 4). It’s been too bloody hot to knit anything, but I haven’t given up. It’s a good job that I don’t need them done until Christmas! I will have them done long before then, but it just doesn’t feel like it right now.

My son keeps asking me if the sweater is his. I told him I would have one for him when it’s cold enough to wear. And you bet I will! I really do love that he’s taking an interest in the things I make. He even asks me if he can help knit from time to time. One day last week he decided that the “guys” (Little Mickey and Pooh) needed to learn how to knit too 🙂

Last week I was in a place where the sunset was just breathtaking. It was so inspirational! I was trying to look at it from a different perspective… I tried to pick out all of the different shades and tones of colour. You know, that’s really not an easy thing to do! Anyway, it did spark some ideas for some future pieces. I can’t wait to learn the techniques that will help me make this piece a reality!
