Happy Easter

It’s been a while since the last post my bad although I’ve been working on crafty stuff I haven’t put a push on getting the projects done as I’ve been on a reading jag lately.

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Easter and God bless all of you out there in blogger land!

This latest sweater is for my grandson Chase. It’s too big for him the sweater being a size two but I figure better giving it to him now so he can have a couple of seasons wear out of it by rolling up the sleeves then waiting until it fits and then only wearing the sweater for a few times.

The picture isn’t a good one because of overcast lighting so the actual sweater is a bit brighter in person and the colour looks more like the kind of blue in a pair of faded denium jeans. The yarn is Paton’s Shetland Chunky Tweeds in the colour ‘sea ice’ and is a acrylic/wool/viscose blend. The sweater pattern is the typical Fair Isle one where you work in the round for the body and sleeves and then join the both and finish in the round as well. Since the yarn had flecks of colour I didn’t bother to include a colour pattern around the neck of the sweater.

  1. Stunning Karen. What a good idea to make it bigger too. How quick kids grow and after all that work he needs to wear it for a while. Plus I think bigger clothes are easier to get onto wriggly children…vbg.
