Knitting? Who knew?

I just want you to know that I'm thinking of you and your complete boredom level and have opted to show you a piece of mediocre knitting that I just completed in lieu of sharing a photo of the ever-growing pile of 2 1/2" strips of fabric that are being sewn together.  Aren't you glad?  Even better, I'm sure, is the lack of mathematical formulas for you to ponder!!

This is a little sweater I made for our grandson - it's nothing fancy.  As a matter of fact, I'm quite hopeful that when (if!) he wears it that it will still be cool enough for him to also be beneath a blanket so nobody has to see it.  Oh well - it's the thought that counts, right?  Maybe he'll feel a little of the grandma-love that went into it and not mind that it looks dorky.

PLEASE don't click to embiggen!!

Pattern is the 'Everyday Toddler Hoodie'

found on Ravelry.

Today the quote is from Mac Beerbohm.... "There is much to be said for failure.  It is more interesting than success"


  1. It looks a pretty fine to me:)

  2. Hi Mary Anne! I am sure he will love it if Grandma has made it! It looks lovely to me! :) x

  3. How wonderful and thoughtful of you!
    It's always hard keeping little ones warm in winter and sweaters are just the thing.

  4. I confess.....I clicked on your cardigan to "embiggen". I think you are being too hard on yourself, it's very sweet. Your grandson will definitely feel the love of his grandma!

  5. it looks grand to me. it is the cozy, not fancy, sweaters that get the most wear and wind up being the ones you can't part with. i'm going to check out the pattern.

  6. I think it's beautiful. Hand knit baby clothes are priceless, traditional, comforting....

  7. I love it! I can remember wearing sweaters my grandmother knitted for me and wish I still had them.

  8. I can't knit as it's too hard on my hands.Well done on this cardigan Mary Ann.

  9. Hi Mary Anne, I think your knitting is very sweet and you are very modest bearing in mind all the skills you clearly have!

  10. Your baby cardigan is lovely, nothing wrong with it at all.
    I imagine his parents will agree with all your followers and love it too.

  11. From one artsy
    grandma to another, I think your sweater is beautiful and its easy to see all the love that went into it.

  12. Looks good to me! The best part?--It's knit with Love!

  13. Can't imagine why you wouldn't love this sweater it's so sweet and I love the big red buttons. i would love it if it were mine!!!
