Susan–oh yes!! I’m already starting another raglan sweater for Katherine!! Maybe I can get guage on this–I’m using a DK yarn called Peru Luxury DK–I got it from littleknits.com–it’s just a natural cream color, and it’s wonderfully soft–I started to do the first one with it–but I wanted to try it on a cheaper yarn to start with! SO, now I’m getting busy with that. I also want to do a topdown cardi from my wonderful dil–Katherine’s mom, and I’m working on a log cabin blankie for Katherine’s big brother (almost 3!!), and I am going to try the Kid’s “Nothing But A Tee-Shirt On” (pattern at Magknits.com, I believe.) I’ve printed so many free patterns off the net, I need to file them in alphabetical order!:teehee:
ANd Nonnie–thanks–yes, grandchildren are the very best things God ever gave us!! We can take them, and then give them back to their parents when we get tired and need a break!! I KNOW why younger people should have kids! :teehee: I [B]really am proud [/B]of the sweater–I didn’t think I could do one in the round, but I didn’t want to have to do seaming, so I tried it. It took me several weeks–not working on it exclusively, though–but I saw where someone did one in a few HOURS! I’m just not a fast knitter, and this was the first piece I’ve done in Continental, which I’m enjoying–except for purling–that’s kinda wonky!:doh:
I don’t know when I’ll make something for me–it takes so much yarn to make an adult sweater, and mine would be a large, so even more!! I’ve got some wool put away, though, for when I think I’m ready to do myself a cardi!
Thanks to all of you for commenting and encouraging–that’s the wonderful thing about KH!!
