I unraveled it in to many little balls of yarn after which I moved back to the east coast.
Summer waves pattern. So I cast on in May... knit at the park, at work .. everywhere you can knit and finished it in July.. I added a few rows of the lace pattern on the sleeves and omitted the garter stitch edging on the neck edge and replace it with one row of single crochet.
The fit is perfect and I plan to wear this to work once the weather gets a little bit cooler. A success story!
After my move, there were a lot of changes and issues to be dealt with. I now help take care of my two grandchildren and still work. That left not much time for blogging. So I give you a short picture view of the happenings for the last seven months..
My car was totaled,, then new cars.. knittng at the park.. more knitting at the park..(still working on some of the same sweaters :( ... Made it to the yarn shop... started making cupcakes and more cupcakes... visits from grand kids and family.. more knitting at the park,, sweater started... sweater finished...painting from my daughter.. refinished an old desk.. and plugging along on the same sweater..
I'm rediscovering Florida and just life I suppose, working through hard times and finding the good times..
More to come.. I have a sweater story for you!

A vision from the past. I knit this sweater for one of my sons and it is in such good condition and has almost come back in style hahah. It fits Jayden perfectly!
I wish you all a wonderful New Year. I hope to post a little more this year.

The first yarn that caught my eye in the shop was the yarn I ended up purchasing. It is by Universal Yarn and it is the Classic Shades Sequins Lite. I love the rich colors. They remind me of fall. I'm knitting the Lacy Entrelac Infinity scarf and I have actually knitted this before a few years ago. I loved how it turned out. This version will have sparkles!
I also started on my Christmas knitting list. This little crochet cardigan will be for my granddaughter. The yarn is recycled from a very large thrift store sweater and is very soft and very pink. I think she will like it.
