She loves it, and I love it on her, but I was apparently pretty bothered by my gage issues. I have since started another sweater for Sawyer (Crazyheart from the Heart on My Sleeve collection, I would link but I have to leave in three mins for school pickup!!) and I am again worried it is too small. My gage is spot on (even after blocking) so I am hoping it is just because it is jammed on the needle. I am knitting him the 8-10 year size, which should be plenty roomy for my skinny kiddo. Hopefully. I am half way through the first sleeve. I also need to get some baby things on the needles. So many new babies are expected this fall!! Exciting! And Dorothy needs a new hat (well, maybe, really all I need to do is go through our hats and find one that fits her, but I like making new things for each kid as well as having them wear things they have all worn).... ANYWAY. Off to pick up Lucy from preschool. I hope to get back into the groove of blogging more...and knitting more...maybe life will settle down next month. HA!

I am still around. I am still knitting. Just also very busy taking care of the three kids.... finding time to hop on the computer is challenging. I am also in a bit of a rut knitting wise. I started a rainbow sweater for Sawyer, and despite the tell-tell signs that it would be too small, I kept going. It was a very fun knit, and in the end it was too small..... BUT it became a rainbow sweater dress for Lucy! So, win?

I will have to do my year end wrap up soon...I got a lot of knitting done last year! But today I wanted to share the first thing I have finished in 2017. It is a vest that I knit with a skein of handspan yarn that was gifted to me by a lovely and dear friend. I love knitting with handspan...it is lovely to work with. The pattern is Milo, which is a great pattern. I love the construction of this vest, it is a simple and quick knit.
