Argyle Sweater for Kale
Having a new grandchild affords all kinds of opportunity for projects. I've been a "so-so" knitter forever but haven't done much in the last 20 years or so...not since my children were little enough not to complain about what I dressed them in. Now with our new grandson Kale I can make things for him to wear and he doesn't have much to say about it yet...it's really fun. I just finished a little argyle cardigan for him...very preppy...too cute. It took much longer than I'd anticipated...complicated (for me) pattern...but fun. The collar was supposed to be navy but I ran short. A little big for him yet, I did a 12 month size so it wouldn't be too small before I even got it finished...so no modeling pictures except for one "try-on" iPhoto. I have just enough yarn for a white hat with blue and green stripes. My daughter wanted an argyle hat but I'm ready to be finished with this project and move on...so it will be simple.
married, 2 grown children and one son-in-law I paint (watercolors and oils) have been a printmaker since high school (forever) and since I sew I also enjoy dyeing and printing fabric. In short, I'll try any sort of project
