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!
