So... Now My Sweater Rush is over and its time to do some Fun Knitting... yippee!!!!

The Grandkids Loved their sweater and said that they all fit... So Thats A " Good Thing"....

Now I am working on some baby Sweaters again... That is my Very Favorite thing to knit... I like them because they are small and get done quickly and I love to try different ideas out with them..
I am working on one now that was pretty frustraiting at first because it was such tedious knitting... sort of fairisle... But now I am to the easier part.
I'm doing a Lattice stitch on it and its an interesting pattern... I'll wait a while until I get most of it done before I post a photo... OK :)
Then there are a million other projects floating around in my Head that I just HAVE to start soon...

Well.. Going to get some of my knitting done now... ...

Hummmmmmmmmm...Lets see now....... Its Less Than 12 Months until CHRISTMAS....

Time is a Tickin.........Better Get those Needles Clicking!!!! :)

Allie and Natalies Sweaters

Whew !.................. I did it !! I finished the last minute Sweaters for Allie and Natalie....
I did one a little smaller than the other but when I got finished they both look almost the same size... Well.. Thats OK.. They will fit!
They are very nice "snuggly" sweaters and will be good for them to where in Buffalo where they live...

I got to the Post Office and mailed them off this morning so they will probably get them in time for Christmas :)
So... Now .. Let me see... What am I going to start making today????

I also finished the book that I was reading... " Dance With Me" by Luanne Rice....
My Friend " Calliope" introduced me to this author and this is the second one of her books that I have finished.. She is a very similar author to Nora Roberts... Nice stories but some you need a pile of tissues next to you when you are reading.... :)

Button Posted by Picasa
One Button Cardigan Posted by Picasa

This I made for Allie .. My Ten year Old Grandaughter. I followed the directions for the Small size in the Magazine and I think it will be just right for her.
I have just started another one for Natalie.. which I will make just a little bit smaller..
The one button in the front is a realy pretty flower but you can not see it in the photo.. Maybe I'll take a quick picture of it ..
As in the Magazine I made this sweater out of Homespun which I happen to think is so soft and cozy!

My Eskimo Sweater
This is My Latest Creation....

I really had Fun making this one. It is a cotton sweater done with Sirdar Chunky and some yarn that I picked up one day at my LYS. The novelty yarn is all little furry things in tan, brown and grey... I didn't know what I was going to use it for but I do Like it on this sweater. It makes me think of an Eskimo or an Indian style . .
The Sirdar Cotton is very SOFT and nice. I only used two skeins of it for this sweater.

I started to make a hat one night with it and then pulled it out because the yarn was so soft and nice and it wanted it to be a sweater instead.... :)
