As if this little girl didn't already have enough hand knit sweaters, right?!
But, for Christmas, we had to make something special. This pattern was completely dreamed up in my head and it was fun to see it 'come to life' over the holidays. It was a little complicated with all the colorwork and sizing- so things may have been "fudged" a bit, but it came together. For that reason, I wouldn't count on a pattern coming out of this- my notes are mere scribbles, and my charts are hand drawn with multiple dark lines being drawn through.
I'm not sure why it has taken me so long to post. When I take a break, it's always hard to come back. I feel I owe some sort of apology or really impressive post, but then I realize I just need to start up to get the ball rolling. The holidays were grand, complete with much time visiting family and friends.
Unfortunately, Joe and I started 2012 off on the wrong foot, with a dreadful case of (what we believe to be) food poisoning. I'm really not sure how we would have gotten through that situation without family nearby, but we have pulled through and finally seem to be on the other side of it.
I hope your holidays were wonderful and that you are now enjoying some selfish knitting- it is time for that, right?!
