Default birthday sweater... in progress

Grace's birthday is Tuesday. It's almost done. I made it match the bow we got from Marj ... the bow has a candle on it. Need to weave some ends in and block it.... and make the tummy. Not decided if I want to make a few more ruffles or leave it with just the one.



Next need to start her Christmas sweater....

OMG, that is hysterical! I wish I could knit them little sweaters! How did you learn and did you follow a pattern?

My grandmother taught me to do basic knitting... like scarves and squares.

Since being sick, I've learned more over the last 4 years.... sweaters, hats, gloves, mitts. When I started knitting for Gus I used patterns. But now I understand it...so I make my own.

This sweater was inspired by one I saw. But I like to put my own style into them.

Gus has a birthday sweater

I love knitting for them.

That is so cute!! My great-grandmother taught me how to knit when I was 8-years-old and I've done a little bit here and there over the years. Most of it was projects I never completed. But maybe with something small like a doggie sweater, I might finish. Do you know of any patterns you'd recommend? I can't wait to see pictures of her in her new sweater on her birthday and that sounds adorable matching a bow with a candle! I'm sorry to hear about your Lyme's and hope you're doing ok now. Will you be able to make her a Christmas sweater in time without stressing yourself too much? I know that stress can cause flare-ups and I know how stressful it can be if you're like me and trying to finish up the night before a holiday or whatever the special occasion is. I used to do that all the time when I was making clothes for my kids when they were little.
