Here is The Progress on my CPH...
I started sewing one sleeve seam and have to do the side seam on that side.. Then do the same on the other side of the sweater and then Finish the Hood and do the band around!!!!
I used a discontinued Woolease for the Sweater and I am making it for my 13 year old GD..
I added 4 stitches to the sleeve width and did the length for the second size ( I am making the smallest size otherwise) I'm happy that I did the increase because the sleeves are snug on me even this way!
Looking at the length it looks like it will be perfect for Allie..
I love the look of this sweater and I am enjoying making it...
If I were to make another one and I just might!! I would knit it as one piece to the armholes... I hate SEWING!!!!

Here is The Progress on My Central Park Hoodie...
I am halfway up sewing the sleeve seam on one side and still have that side seam to sew.. Then I have to sew the other side... I started The Hood but have alot of it to go...
Then I have to do the Bands all the way around the front and the front of the hood...
I am making this for Allie .. My 13 year old GD....I did the sleeves a bit longer (like the second size requires ) because I heard some knitters say the sleeves were too short and to tight.. I also added 4 stitches to the width of the sleeve and I am glad that I did because it is still "fitting" on my arms....
Looking at the length of the sweater on me.. I think it should be a perfect length for Allie...
All in All I enjoyed making this sweater... Its just the "sewing up" that I never like !!!
I guess you can knit this in one piece up to the armholes and have Less Sewing!!!

The Yarn is an old discontinued Woolease that I bought years ago..
So another good thing is that I used some of My Stash!!!!

Baby Wrap

I made Claire her First Grandma Knitted Sweater.....
Its a really little baby Wrap and I got the pattern from "Cherished Knits for Babies" ...Hummm.... I THINK thats the name of it...
I added the embroidered flowers myself ..
We went up to Buffalo to visit all the grandkids this past week so I got to deliver it and see Claire wearing it... Which reminds me to post that photo also... So it will be already posted by now being the way the Blog goes from one post and then the other later.. I wish we could rearrange the posts order sometimes so they are in the correct order ???
Anyway.... I used fingering yarn and a size 2 needle for this one so it is really a nice light weight sweater.. Perfect for Little babies !!!!

Here is The Progrerss Report on the Dress that I am test knitting...
Its a size 8 and this is the top and some of the skirt..
I have to knit to the length that I want and then do a few additions... If I had kept knittting just this one project as I should have... I would have been finished with it by now but then My Daughter went and had a baby Girl sooooooooooo I HAD to knit up some things for her because I am going up to Buffalo to visit them all... :)
So Lily.. I will get to finish this Adorable Dress very soon... Sorry for the delay .... :)
But as you can see , Your Pattern and its directions are working up very well...

This is for All The Grandma's from their Grandchildren :)


The computer swallowed grandma. Yes, honestly its true!
She pressed 'control' and 'enter'And disappeared from view.
It devoured her completely,The thought just makes me squirm.......
She must have caught a virus Or been eaten by a worm.
I've searched through the recycle bin And files of every kind; I've even used the Internet, But nothing did I find.
In desperation, I asked Jeeves...... My searches to refine....The reply from him was negative, Not a thing was found 'online.'
So, if inside your 'Inbox,'My Grandma you should see, Please 'Copy,''Scan' and 'Paste' her....And send her back to me. :)
