Both kids have kind of slowed down in growth, and I'm taking some time to make them both a new sweater. I'm making Maggie's first, because she barely has any sweaters! My friend Suzanne pointed out the Tuckernuck sweater in the latest Interweave, and I thought it was perfect.
I've learned, in my great 1 full year of baby girl knitting expereince, that I have to just give in to the pink. I have knit Maggie several sweaters, and was avoiding knitting pink - mostly to be different! And fun! Well, different and fun doesn't match with the majority of pink hand me down clothes that Maggie actually wears - so the sweaters didn't get worn much. What a waste. So, I have given in, and am knitting her this bubble gum pink sweater.
I love the simple knitting, but how it looks so complicated. It's a great pattern and I'm excited to have her wear it. Now, just to find the time to knit.
