I LOVE TO KNIT

Over the years I have knitted some pretty sweaters.  Thank you mom for teaching me to knit.... I have made some nice baby sweaters that make nice gifts. Other hobbies have taken priority though.  I did love to do cables and Icelandic sweaters. I have two left that were a bit big that I can still wear.  Both were made for hubby and he has put on weight so he can no longer wear them but I still do. Anyway I thought if I can knit big why not small????  Well it is pretty dang tedious but I am trying.  I started out with a little swatch to see if I could do it.  
 
Here is a free pattern I found from Buttercup Knitting out of the UK.  Most knitting needles and accessories come from the UK and I don't do pay pal so I was on my own.  I found some tatting needles at Joann Fabrics and I think they are small enough and I had some yarn left over from a mini tapestry class I took last spring.

 
This is the back of the sweater so far I have done.
 
 
These are tiny stitches and if my eyes hold out lol I may get it finished....
 
 
Next will be the front and the sleeves.  Wish me luck!!!  I will post it when done.
Till next time.   Mini Hugs, LJ

  2. Hello LJ,
    I can't wait to see the finished sweater. That is one talent I have not yet mastered which is on my to do list.
    Keep up the fantastic work.
    Big hug,
