This sweater is for a colleague's new baby daughter. The pattern is Mason-Dixon's "Heartbreakingly Cute Baby Kimono," and I used size 5 and 6 needles with Lion Brand Micro Spun in white. I secured the left front with a button at the right seam and used one of the holes along the edge as the buttonhole. This was quick to make -- next time I might try the garter stitch version.
I finally finished this sweater for a colleague's new granddaughter. I used Mission Falls cotton yarn and the Daisy Cardigan pattern from knitty.com. I added the sleeve stripes because I didn't have enough purple, but I think they look cute!
We had a great time in Houston with Rachel, Rob, Eleanor, and Thomas. We kept the kids while R&R saw old friends and attended wedding festivities. We also celebrated our 34th anniversary with wonderful takeout from D'Amico's! Here's Eleanor outside the Natural Science Museum.
You've heard of The Young and the Restless? And The Bold and the Beautiful? Well, the story of my life would have to be called The Dull and the Dutiful. No one would buy my autobiography, as I had a happy childhood, married a terrific man, and have two brilliant and delightful adult children and three adorable (and brilliant) grandchildren. Oh, and I have just retired from a long career in higher education!
