    My daughter asked me to make DGD a sweater since the weather is turning cooler (in NH). I've only made a few infant sweaters and this was my first attempt at a toddler size; hope it fits!

    Thanks for looking ... and now back to quilting!

    Very cute. Your granddaughter will love it! I don't do a lot of knitting. I made one adult size sweater and an afghan years ago. Now I stick to hats for the hospital.

    Lynne, I used to live in Nashua & really miss NH, especially this time of year. Columbus Day was the worst traffic dayback then as all the leaf-peepers were coming back down from up north & all roads led right through Nashua. I took the day off so as to not have to deal with the traffic. The colors were more beautiful than anywhere else in the country. Swamp maples made the hills look like they were on fire!!!!

    Sweater is so cute. Nice job! I knit, but don't enjoy it all that much any more - arthritis hurst too much with the needles.

    I knit dishcloths and how many of those do you need? That is my Christmas gift to everybody whether they need them or not! Wish I could do beautiful things like that sweater!

    That's fantastic. You did a great job. It looks so nice and warm. Do you want my size in case you need to take another break from quilting? :)

    I can knit but I am sooooo slow. I recently saw a child's sweater knitted with no seams. I thought, "how did they do that?" Your sweater is very nice and will be in use soon I bet.
