Lovely Yellow

Hello dear ladies, So nice to be posting today. Just wanted to show you my newest knitting project. My oldest granddaughter is turning 5 next week. Yes, I can't believe it myself! They grow up so fast especially when you don't see them all the time and just have them for special occasions. So spring and summer are coming here in New England, USA. I think, I hope! So I decided to knit in cotton and make "Little A" a vest sweater in Yellow. It's a great shade and will look so beautiful on her. Always this time of year yellow is my favorite color. It's just so cheerful, bright, and clean. The book shows the sweater in white which is lovely, but I don't think my daughter would appreciate it as much. So here is what I have done so far. Need to finish it by this time next week which shouldn't be a problem.

So what do you think? I think it's pretty cute! I have brought her lots of summer clothes and some toys, so I think I will be all set once this vest is done. Of course, I got a few gifts for "Little E" too.

I just saw my first robin bird today. I was so excited, just wish I had the camera near by.
Well, I hope everyone has a lovely weekend! See you all soon. Thank you for popping in and please don't be afraid to post a comment. I love them all and reading them really brings so much joy!
