I'm joining in (very late in the day) with Ginny and posting about something I'm knitting and something I'm reading.
This is the "In Threes" pattern found here.
So when I saw that Ginny had cast this pattern on her needles a few weeks back I just knew I had to try it. I'm happy I did and Caitlyn is happy I did as well. Although this is a size 5T, and my daughter is 8 years old, her chest actually measured the 5T size. I do have to put this back on the needles though as she is skinny but tall and I need to add a few inches to the bottom. The yarn is Mochi Plus and VERY soft. All the colors make this sweater a little busy for me but this is what she asked for. What do you think?
I also made a second one for a baby shower (I'll save that for another post) and I'm planning on making a third for Bethany. The name "In Threes" made me think that I just had to make three!
The book is Ginger Plowman's Don't Make Me Count to Three. This is about the third time I've read it and it gets me every time. The subtitle is "a mom's look at heart-oriented discipline." I so desperately what to get to their hearts!
Now you might see a theme here. There are a lot of threes in this post. Believe me, I didn't plan this. I actually think this is quite funny. Shhh... there are even three buttons waiting to be sewn on the sweater!
It's beautiful! My daughters would love all that color as well. You are a quick knitter!ReplyDelete
Oh I love threes. I have three daughters so we lots of threes here. The sweater is beautiful and looks like 8. As for the book, I totally agree about getting to their hearts. I will have to see if I can get it through inter libaray loan.ReplyDelete
That book looks great, and the sweater looks lovely. When I knit for my kids I hardly ever would pick the yarns/colors they choose, but I figure they're more likely to wear it if they choose it, right?!?ReplyDelete
Oh I just LOVE this sweater and the yarn you used :) My daughter is 7 and would just love one of these :) I clicked on the link you put to the sweater pattern but for some reason it goes to a blank page. Could you please let me know where to find the pattern as I would love to check it out :)ReplyDelete
I love the colorway! Beautiful knitting! The book is GREAT! I need to get it again from my local library... I think my girls could greatly benefit from the wisdom there!ReplyDelete
I totally noticed the 3's =) I love the cardigan...it looks SO great! That book looks good too.ReplyDelete
