I’m a knitter, if you didn’t know.
I LOVE to knit, like I love to eat cookies. It’s very relaxing–the knitting that is. And it doesn’t make me fat like eating cookies does.
Right now I am knitting the Blue-Eyed Boy a sweater vest for Easter. I even let him pick the colors (what a crazy nice mommy!). He actually picked really nice complimentary colors (blue and bright green). The pattern is from 1950. My Great Grandmother bought the book for 75 cents way back when. When she passed my mom was given all of her knitting stuff because she had taught my mom how to knit (although I don’t think my mom remembers anymore) and no one else in the family knew how. When I taught myself how to knit my mom passed it all on to me. I have some really great books on argyle socks and such. I think the newest book I have was from the 70s (she died in the 80s just before I was born). I wish I could have known her. Anyways..moving on.
I really enjoy watching it come together. I am currently almost finished with the back side. It’s full of cables and ribbing which keeps me on my toes (or fingers?), but makes it really interesting.
Here’s what it looks like so far:
Pretty spiffey huh? Well, I think so at least!
Now I don’t know if you all have noticed but for the last..umm….9 posts (including this one) I have been using song lyrics or movie quotes as the titles of my posts.
What in tarnation would posses me to do that?!? You might possibly be asking yourself (although not in such a strange way, I’m sure, unless you talk funny like me). Well, I’m going to tell you.
It’s Giveaway time!!!!! (Are you excited? Well you should be!)
One lucky winner will receive a hand-knit custom sweater vest for their little girl or boy. The only stipulation to this is that it will take me at least a month to make it, so sorry but good things come to those who wait! I’m going to leave this giveaway open for quite awhile so that I can finish the Blue-Eyed Boys vest and you all can see how it looks (and decide if you actually would want your kid to be seen in one!) And because I want to get more than just the 8 faithful readers to enter (I love you all–you know it). The other stipulation is that the winner give me some constructive criticism and feedback on it. I am thinking of adding these to my store and you (the lucky winner) get to be my guinea-pig (are you feeling special? I hope so!). Don’t worry I’ll just email you some questions to answer after you have received it, it’s easy as eating a pie…..or a cookie.
