Yahoooooooooooo.. Lookie Lookie !!!
Yarn Yarn Yarn... I am making " Plans" for some of it already!!!
Thank You So Much Erica!!!! What a Treat !!!!
For those of you who have never made a Beribboned Sweater...
This is what it looks like when you have completed the One Piece .....
Then you Fold it and Flip it ........ sew up the shoulders and the two little underarms
and You Have an Adorable Little Sweater !!!
Another Beribboned Version
There is the Origional Beribboned Sweater which I have already made and is just Adorable...
Then Yvette made the Garter Stitch version which is also Adorable..
AND now I have made a Stockinette and Garter Version !!!
This is such a cute sweater which ever way you make it.
It is all done on one circular needle and there is very little sewing to do :) Which is a BIG Plus for me ..
This one is done in Bernarts Cotton .. I have had this yarn for some time now and when I origionally bought it I told my Friend " Diana" that I was going to put Scotty Buttons on a sweater made with this yarn.......... Oh.. "The Scotty With The Dotty" Mary....our other shopping buddy said ... LOL.. Well.. It took me some time to get to it but here is ..."My Scotty With The Dotty Sweater "!!!
See.. Mary and Diana.. I did finally get it made !!!

Here is The yarn that I have for My Olympian Sweater....
I have 9 skeins of this Lovely Sirdar Cotton Yarn which I have been saving " hoarding" for a few years... I FINALLY decided WHAT to make with it.....
After several attempts at starting two other sweater choices last night.. I decided on the Plain Classic cardi for Myself... Yippee... I am knitting something for me.... :)
As you can see I did not get very far yet..
First ... I did not realize that yesterday was the 10th until last night ... " I never seem to know what day it is " except for Sunday.. when I go to Church :)
Well Anyway.. I'll have to knit faster so I can catch up...
How is everyone else doing ?
GOOD MORNING ......... This is what I wake up to in the morning... Isn't it Lovely??
" Life Is Good "....................
Two Cups of Coffee........... Some Cheerios..... and I am Ready for a New day !!!
This morning I went next door to a Garage Sale and got two nice bags of yarn.. along with a knitting bag and alot of needles and a How To Knit Book........... " There is always something to learn, Right?

This is My " Snug As A Bug In A Rug" Sweater :)
While I was knitting this all I kept thinking of was Snug as a Bug in a Rug.. The yarn looked so much like a rug...
But when I finished it... I REALLY loved it.. Its so SOFT and Snuggly !!!!
Its amazing what a few skeins of puffy soft yarn can turn into..... :)
