It’s finally finished, a sweater for my sweet girl! Once I got creative in finding time to knit, i.e. knitting in the car on the way to the farm it actually knit up pretty quick. This is my first non diaper cover project completed in a long time. It feels great to create something. I really have the bug now. I started a sweater for Avril using the same pattern but different color. I am really pleased with how this turned out but I will have to do some adjusting on the button holes.
Yesterday when I was trying the completed sweater on her I got real worried when she started crying to take it off. Luckily turns out she was just hot and once we got outside everything was fine. The original pattern has handmade knotted buttons after a few attempts it was off to the yarn store.
One the way home we saw a boy about 7 years old walking on the side of the road. Two was all concern saying, “why is he by himself, doesn’t he have a family?” Obviously our family loves going places together. Apparently I didn’t give the right answer, something like, he probably has a family he’s just by himself now. Two says, “Maybe he could be our brother. Let’s ask him if he wants to be in our family.” I told Two he was a good boy but that doesn’t cover the half of it.
I would really like to make something for Two but what? He is so hot blooded I don’t know what he would wear. Proeun suggested a hat, but I honestly haven’t seen him keep one on. My dad is the same way so once I made him a vest but I have only seen him wear it a couple times. We’ll see what ideas I can come up with.
