A Finish and My Favorite Models

Here's the finished jumper.  That smocking was a lot of fun and is all done by knitting.  I think it'd look great on a pair of mitts!


When we delivered the jumper, Missy happened to be wearing a top the same color as the buttons!


Recently our littlest fashionista discovered that the sweater I made for her last fall finally fits. I was told she picked out the rest of the outfit herself including the shoes after trying on all of her varied shoe choices first.  Impressive!


Here's big brother, who's almost always in a good mood, wearing his new birthday hoodie. Looks like size 3 fits pretty well.


DD#1 sent this photo of the Chicago threesome in their Christmas knits. I got a sweet letter the other day from our grand daughter that said,  I'll never it (the purple hat) off. "  Guess I'll have too make another. A girl can't have too many hats or shoes, right?


I am such a lucky grandma! Check out Patchwork Times for other knitting project ideas.

You are lucky to have so many lovely children to knit for. My only grandson wouldn't even try on the hat and sweater I made him. He cries hysterically everytime he sees it. Sigh......
