madge for libby

Thursday, February 04, 2016

Okay friends.  When your daughter see's you making a new sweater and asks if it's for her, you immediately respond, YES!  (Even though you had yours eyes on it.)
I have not made a sweater for Libby for quite some time.  Not for lack of not wanting to.  But, because she had entered into that phase of not really wanting me to.  (GASP!)  I think the last sweater I made her was the Libby.  Yes, there have been socks.  And hats.  And cowls.  And mitts.  But, no sweaters.  
Until Madge.
And Libby LOVES Madge.
And I loved making Madge.
There is just the mix I love in a project.  A little stitch pattern.  Some stockinette.  A hem.  Rib sleeves.  Snap closures.  It had all the makings for a project that keeps me fully interested.  Not to mention my girl asking me if I was almost finished.  
It's just so gratifying when someone really appreciates your work.  Right?!
It was so worth the wait.

  15. Well, now the mystery is solved. When I saw the picture on Instagram, I saw Libby and thought, "that sweater fits her like a glove. If Leslie's not careful, Libby will steal it." Now I see, it's YOU who is going to have to have the occasional sticky fingers. :) love how easily you handed it over.
