I realized I forgot to share this completed project with you....
I used 'Jeans' yarn by Lion Brand and it is from the 'Wonder Years' pattern by Elizabeth Smith Knits and can be found HERE. I love this pattern and have used it several times. There's a second sweater currently drying after being blocked that I will show you next time, also from the same pattern, and I started the third one as well. Three little grandson will be warm come Christmas I hope!
And, this is a teeny little glimpse of another project I have underway...
- THIS would be a handy gift for the tv-watcher in your household provided, of course, the brain could be trained to actually USE it!!!
- I think THIS would make a wonderful little gift if it were accompanied perhaps by a pretty mug and maybe some packets of hot chocolate.
- Those of you who are owned by a cat might find THIS a fun project that will be appreciated by your furry friend.
- There's a tutorial HERE that gives great info on using colored pencils on fabric.
I love that yarn - the sweater looks so comfy. Lucky grandkids to have a grandma that's so talented.ReplyDelete
I'm glad I bought that yarn in three different 'denim' colorways because it's lovely to work with and the sweaters are so soft. Don't know how well it will wear in the long run but I'm not too worried because I know the boys will grow out of them in short order anyway.Delete
The sweater turned out great! I'm keeping my eye out for a sale on the denim yarn to give it a try.ReplyDelete
I suspect I'll be getting more of that yarn - just wish it came in more colours.Delete
What a gorgeous little sweater. Lion Brand makes such lovely coloured and soft yarns.ReplyDelete
I haven't often worked with Lion Brand yarns but I certainly will be trying more.Delete
So many projects you forgot a couple?? This is what I call productive.ReplyDelete
Hmmm - productive, or suffering from mental-pause???Delete
I liked the hanging cat thingy but I don't my old cat could make it up there. The trick with the coloured pencils was very cool. And thank you for the giggle.ReplyDelete
Glad you thought the cartoon was worth a laugh - I was worried I might offend some people. No kitties here any longer, but if there were I would have made one of those hangers.Delete
is that a Harry Potter cross stitch?ReplyDelete
Yep - our grandson is somewhat obsessed with HP right now and he's enjoying the books so I thought a bookmark might be fun for him.Delete
A lovely cardigan - I like raglan sleeves too. The cat looks so comfy in the cute bed by the window. No offence taken by the giggle. :-)) Interesting info on the pencils too.ReplyDelete
Raglan sleeves are my favourites, simply because there's no sewing involved! Glad you enjoyed the giggle.Delete
The sweater is a classic - and will probably become a favorite. Nice knitting :)ReplyDelete
Thank you Quinn! It's definitely a classic pattern and one that I find quite easy to customize by adding colour changes here and there.Delete
Looks like a beautiful sweater Mary Anne and I am sure your grandsons will stay snuggly and warm in them! Christine xxReplyDelete
I must admit that I'm really loving the Lion Brand Jeans yarn and just wish it came in more colours. The three sweaters I'm using it for are actually different colourways but it's hard to tell unless they're side by side.Delete
What a nice looking sweater. I have some of that yarn (not enough of one color to make a whole thing), but you sure make me want to get it out and see what I CAN make with it.ReplyDelete
That yarn is lovely to knit with but I haven't tried it with crochet. Will be interesting to see if you like it.Delete
You are so productive! Lucky grandchildren!ReplyDelete
I get my joy from creating things for my family and grandkids just make it that much better!Delete
