So, do you remember me talking about how I finished this hat for Odin awhile back?
And how I was going to make a sweater for him with the same yarn? Well... I did.
I just finished it up late last week and am so proud of it! It's the first sweater I've ever knit before and I think it turned out really nicely. Odin loves it. He ran around with it on telling everyone, "Look at my newly made sweater!" And yes, he does have a black eye. I just know someone is going to ask. He had a bit of a run-in (literally) with a toy.
Since I had so much fun knitting this sweater for him and since Aiden respectfully declined a sweater for himself (at least until his sweater from Christmas doesn't fit anymore) I decided to start knitting myself a sweater. I found the most beautiful and soft purple yarn ever. I'm loving knitting it. It's just so soft to touch.
I've made it a long way in the last few days. If I have enough free time in the evenings I'll hopefully finish it before Jake gets home in a few weeks. That's my goal anyway. I do have a lot of quilts and mug rugs to finish up and list in the shop too though, and that's Priority #1 for now.
I finished this quilt up almost 2 weeks ago now and have yet to list it.
|Don't you love how bright it is?|
|Back with extra blocks and strips pieced in.|
|This quilt is seriously gorgeous. The fabric is It's a Hoot by Momo. It's still one of my favorite fabrics. So bright and colorful and the different prints and designs are wonderful. I need to try to find more of it before it's impossible to get.|
|I used my little flower bud design for the quilting again. I love that design.|
I really wanted to finish Odin's sweater before I listed this and then I just had to start this sweater for myself. I mean the yarn was so beautiful! Walking by it over and over again all day long for several days and my willpower to wait until I caught up on my WIP's caved. So, even though I'm still working on this new sweater for myself, I have vowed I will get at least 5 things listed by April 5. Big vow, but I think I can do it.
Well, I'm off to knit my sweater... uhhh, finish a quilt I mean... no, knit. Maybe if I just knit for a few hours or 8 I'll get it out of my system for a few days. Maybe...
