Done in the Nick of Time

Hooray the Red sweater is done. It was fun, but I don't think I want to make 2 more. There were 6 pieces to sew together, I like knitting from the neck down better. The least seams the better, but I do think it turned out nicely and I think my daughter will like it. It's was her Birthday on the 16th, so she will get it on Thanksgiving, instead of Christmas!!

So here's the taaa-daaaa

one more

Notice I have a black long sleeve top underneath, I think that looks best! So I got one to go with the sweater.

I have also been playing around with crocheting a tea cozy, inspired from Alice @ Crochet with Raymond. She does awesome projects!!! Here is the start of mine, still a work in progress. To be finished after Thanksgiving.

This one's a little clearer. I still have to put picot trim on handle and spout and button on handle side.

Well, Friends thanks for stopping in to visit at my nest. It's been fun to show you my little projects.
Don't be shy to comment, if you care too. I would love to hear from you. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and many blessings to you, xo Robin❤

  7. Love your red sweater, I'm sure your daughter was delighted with it! I love knitting but not the sewing up part and especially not sewing on button bands! The tea cosy looks very cute too.
