Ug. I DO NOT like the sleeves at all. I don't like the way the neck works with the sleeves. I tried a single crochet border around the neck area - and it helped, but I still didn't like the sleeves. So - I am going to have to take them off and convert the sweater to a sleeveless one. But I couldn't face it this weekend. I sewed those sleeves in really well! I will work on it next week and get it finished off so I can post pictures and finally WEAR IT!
Secondly, Olivia loves Ethan's loomed blanket. I babysat the grandkids this week at their house, and of course couldn't wait to cover a sleeping Ethan with the blanket Gramma made him. I had my phone close by and snapped this pic:
Olivia snagged the blanket as soon as Ethan woke up, and played & played with it. It was a doll blanket, it was a pillow for her, it was a cape, it was a bed ... so ... you know what I have to do now, ha ha.
I have some yarn in my stash and I'm going to loom knit smallish blanket for her to play with. As soon as I finish my hat!
I'm using the single Knifty Knitter purple loom - it is large, but the gauge is smaller on this one than the ones in the set. Two strands of Red Heart Shimmer. a garter stitch brim and the Lacy Diamond Stitch for the top of the hat (above the doubled up brim). I should be able to finish it this weekend, and considering the weather is turning colder I thought it was time for a simple black hat. The shimmer isn't too noticeable, but enough that I won't feel like I'm wearing a plain black hat. :-)
Thanks for stopping by.
