On the Needles - Chloe (Part 2)
Reya's little Chloe sweater is moving right along. This is good, as her birthday is just a little over a week away. I just have the ruffle at the bottom, a bit of sleeve knitting and a few buttons to sew on. I tried it on my son, despite his outspoken protests, and it is so stinkin' cute!
While it's not a difficult pattern, the stripes mean that I had to tote around three balls of yarn everywhere the project went. I am a very mobile knitter. My knitting must be able to travel between karate practice, doctor visits, playdates, and Knit Night at my local yarn shop. Each and every time I went to take it from my knitting bag, the three skeins managed to somehow wind themselves into a big rat's nest. I mean, how is that even possible? I think the next striped project I knit will be a "home" only knitting project.
I can't wait to see her reaction when she unwraps her gift on her birthday. I am hoping that it will be extra meaningful as she had a hand in designing the sweater. So fun!!!
