a yellow sweater for ginger

The last time I knitted a sweater was for my 13 year old neice when she was 3!  I had made a couple for myself before that.  And then I swore to myself, and made a pact with my mom that if we ever talked about knitting a sweater again we would hope the other would talk some sense into us so that we wouldn't actually try that again. 

So I didn't tell her this time.  And I found myself a good old vintage crochet sweater pattern for kids on etsy.  And I took it one peice at a time.  Enjoying the fact that I was making a sweater for my own daughter, one stitch at a time.

And she loves it!  And I love it!  And it fit just right!

Next one is for Ruby.  I'll keep you posted.

It is a lovely sweater! It would have been sad if I'd talked you out of it. Thanks for the great hat! It's cold here, I'm going to wear it tomorrow.
