One down , one to go

And none too soon I might add. Dylan & Evan came home from the hospital on Monday . How's that for a Thanksgiving gift ! Everyone is doing well , but I bet with having two babies to feed ,
clothe and diaper , Susie and Fred have their hands full . Fortunately she's got a good support system with family and friends willing to help out .


I'm happy with how this sweater turned out . I knit it with Regia 6 ply sock yarn . I wasn't sure how the stripes would knit up . I knew that with being knit top down & the short row shaping , the stripes most likely wouldn't wouldn't match up . I had to let go of my perfectionist tendencies and go with the flow .
After this next one I have 2 more babies needing hand knits . Jeez Louise , people just have to stop all this making babies so that I can get some Christmas knitting done ! Mind you , if Max & Stef get on that train I'd be one happy Omi , just saying ...

The sweater looks great! I feel the same way about the baby knitting. I only have one baby project to do and am feeling totally guilty for not starting it. The babe was born in Sept!!

Very cute, and the stripes line up better than I would have guessed! Congratulations to all the family!
