Happy Sunday! What a week! I hope you all had a great week and are having a fun, relaxing weekend! I'm trying to be as lazy as possible today. *smile* I thought today would be the perfect day to show the picture of the sweater I knitted. It's a cowl neck sweater from an older issue of Creative Knitting. It's my first adult-size sweater. It's SUPER soft! I made it with Knit Picks yarn. My goal was to make an adult-size sweater that was simple. When I saw the picture of the sweater I knew it was the one, but it's largest size wasn't going to be big enough for me. My friend LaDonna suggested I just go one size up for the needles and that's just what I did. Funny thing is that I've lost weight/inches since knitting it, so it's a little loose on me. I'm ok with that though! The sweater has a few mistakes, but that makes it personal to me, right?

I'm just really enjoying knitting. I finished knitting some slippers that will be felted and I'm working on finishing up the purse bag I started a couple of months ago. And I'm looking for a pattern to make a baby hat and possibly booties for my friend Janae's little Owen who was born just a few days ago.
