Baby Sweaters!

This is a sweater I made several years ago, with bright red
buttons to keep things interesting.

As December approaches, I get the urge to knit. With the onset of the cold weather, gardening isn't an option, so I turn to indoor activities. I don't have the patience to knit grown-up sized sweaters, so I knit for babies - for the children and grandchildren of friends.

I was taught how to knit a simple scarf when I was about 11 years old. The rest I have picked up along the way. Decoding knitting patterns can be an adventure, especially when your stitch-count doesn't match the pattern. I've learned not to stress over mistakes... it just means the sweater was made by hand and isn't perfect.

Life wouldn't be complete without "help" from my rescue
