I do love knitting, including sewing seams. I'd rather sew pieces together than go through all the crazy contortions that some patterns have you do to avoid them.
This is the first of two baby sweaters. Our neighbors have new twin granddaughters, and I dug through the Cotton Ease box* and found two bright colors to make sweaters for them. The first one is done, other than the seams, and I'm putting a little hood on it.
In the category of knitting screw ups, can anyone spot the mistake here?
How about now?
Yup, I forgot to put in the buttonholes. I discovered this after I had the shoulders seamed and started putting in the first sleeve. I am NOT reknitting to fix it. I'll sew the buttons on as decoration, and put snaps in.
That's the second color.
We're at Wintergrass again this weekend. So far it's been a blast, although we are really happy that our room at the Hyatt is on a “quiet floor”. I love the banjos, but not so much at 2 AM.
*Why yes, I have a whole box of Cotton Ease, in the original bright colors. They don't make this stuff anymore, so my grand stash plan is working!
