|Sweater pattern by Zoe Mellor|
I have never knit a whole sweater before. I have a great book titled, Adorable Knits for Tots by Zoe Mellor. I love nearly all of the patterns. I have looked at this cute zip-up jacket (p. 100-103) for awhile. I learned how to put in zippers this winter, so now it's possible. I think it's time for me to make something larger than a hat.
I decided to try one for my 3 year old daughter. I figure it's best to start small then move up to one for me. It's a cute raspberry color done in the moss/seed stitch. (See picture above for completed pattern.) I haven't made it very far yet, but here's the beginning. I think it'll take awhile.... So hang in there and look for updates!
I haven't done any sewing all week (gasp) because I've had a bad cold, or more properly termed influenza. It's dreadful. So, I have occasionally had the energy to knit for a little bit, but mostly I've been collapsing. I had found myself wishing for a "normal" job so I could take a day off-- something full time caretakers (or stay at home) or Moms don't get. When I'm sick I long for the days I could call in sick and then sleep and read a book in complete silence while I was recovering. Ah... The good old days. LOL.
