For this week's Yarn Along I'm still working on Inconceivable, which is in turn a heart-breaking and soul-encouraging read. I'm about halfway through and completely enthralled with the journey of this family who made such a sacrifice.
I also started working on this sweet textured sweater for a friend's new little one. The pattern is the Fred Textured Sweater from Natural Knits for Babies and Moms, and the yarn is Swish DK in Carnation from Knit Picks. I think this soft, washable yarn will make the perfect winter sweater for a 6 month old sweet girl.
And Finn's Christmas sweater, that I just began last week, I finished after only 4 days. I really enjoyed working on this sweater and made a size 6 so hopefully we'll get 2 winters of use from it. (In chunky yarn and size 10 needles, it went so quickly!)
He was impish, of course, about having a photo shoot in his new sweater, but he really loves his new red Christmas sweater.
It's hard to believe its only been 2 years since I knit my first sweater, also for Finn, and now he has his fourth mama-knit sweater. A little boy who has a Christmas birthday needs a special sweater to wear each year (and also for Christmas pictures which is why he received it now instead of waiting until his actual birthday.)
