The sweater I am making is one of Kay Meadors from her Fashion Collection, Leisure Arts #3083. The pattern is Crewneck Cardigan. I am using burgundy thread which is quite lovely. It is very difficult, however, to get a good photo of its true hue.
Here is the swatch I made:
It measured right. But you would NOT believe the number of times I have started and re-started this sweater. Grrr!!! But it is SO pretty, that I am persevering. I am. I decided this last round, that if it is too small, I will just try to add more to the edging.
The purse is from a free pattern I got from Patons to use with their Grace yarn. I have several skeins left from a baby dress I made my niece, which is posted here and here. Plus, there is the perfect linen colored material in the stash from my mom to use as a liner. I plan on customizing pockets for my own personal needs. I have about 1/2 of the motifs done now.
The little doilies are for gifts. I REALLY need to get them finished so I can send them off and be DONE with Christmas officially. I also have to send our family picture out. Plus school started Monday. I'm sure it will all get done. I pray it won't take me too long.
Whew! Now all I need to show you is that little 12 mo. sweater...
