Shopping Bag

My recyclable shopping bag was tattered and torn so I decided to put a new cloth one together. This was a very quick and easy project and I plan to make more of them.

Summer Sweater

This is Cece from Chic Knits, just completed. The yarn is a little heavy for really hot days. I like short sleeved cardigans for summer.

A Sweater for Mary Jo

I just finished this yellow sweater for Mary Jo's fifth birthday. I added the lacy stitch to the body because stockinette gets boring!

Cardigans in March

Pattern: Knitting Pure and Simple Top Down Jacket

Pattern: Patton's Must Have Cardigan
Finished 3-25-09

I worked on these two sweaters at the same time, one simple plain knitting, and the other more challenging with cables. Both sweaters are made of wool and here comes spring, so I guess they'll mostly be put away until fall.
