Over the last couple of years, my extended family has exploded: in a good way! Many of my cousins are now starting their families. It’s been my goal to gift to them a knitted sweater and small quilt with each new arrival. So far, I’ve been pretty good about getting it done!
My current work in progress is a sweater I found on Ravelry. It is one of my favorite websites to go to for free knitting and crocheting patterns. The other is Lion Brand Yarn.
The pattern is called Wee Peanut. It has a simple 4 stitch cable pattern down the front. Hopefully, I’ll have enough extra yarn to make a matching hat.
I love the color I chose! But red is also one of my favorite colors! The body of the sweater is almost done, then I will move to the sleeves.
I think I need to spend some time creating my own knitting patterns. There are a lot of beautiful stitches to use to make baby sweaters. My sister-in-law just had her baby which is a preemie and I’ve had a hard time finding patterns that are sized for preemies. I would make sure my patterns cover a wide range of sizes.
