hotline sweater

Sunday, December 03, 2017

I have missed knitting for my kids so much.  I hat here or there.  A pair of socks.  An occasional sweater for Libby (in which I choose the pattern).  But most of my knitting is for myself.  Except for the gift of Toast I give often to others.  Ack.  Does that sound selfish?  I sure hope not.  It's just that my boys don't want me to knit them a sweater.  However, I think Steve would probably love a sweater so I should definitely think about making him one in 2018.
Well, a couple of weeks ago, I received a text from Libby with a screen shot of the Hotline sweater asking if I could make it for her.  Are you kidding me?!  I'M ON IT!  The fact that she went to Wool And The Gang's site, looking for a sweater for me to make her made my heart sing.  Truly music to this mothers ears.

  2. I’m like you. I’d love to knit for my kids but they don’t want handknits so when my son asked for a hat I was all over it. I immediately searched ravelry for a pattern, searched my stash for yarn, confirmed both with him and knit the hat that night. I can’t wait to see him wear it once the weather gets colder.
