Lookit wot I did

Lookit. I made a sweater.

I’ve been knitting on and off (mostly off) since I was 12, and I think this is the first sweater I’ve actually completed all by myself. I adapted the pattern from one I got on Etsy.com. The yarn is some old acrylic Lion Brand worsted weight called “Monet’s Garden” that I bought because I lovelovelove the colors. It was supposed to be for the Sprout, but because I’m lazy and hate figuring out my gauge, it turned out about twice as large as I’d intended it to. Which made it perfect for the Hatchling:

Which is nice, because now they can both wear it. Next up: some projects for the two babies soon to be welcomed into the extended family. (Not mine! Good God, not mine. Two of my sisters are knocked up. :-))

  1. Plus, interchangeable ribbons! The Hatchling picked this one and there are still green and pink to go.

  2. Soooo pretty! And she looks adorable in it. Well done!

    I just realized that if I ever get to see you guys again, I will need a crash course in the babies’ names–in my mind, they are just Hatchling and Sprout. I think in a pinch I could call up their real names, but no guarantees . . .
