pink memories

Finally, I finished Pink Memories.  I had an issue with the yarn and while waiting for a replacement, lost my steam.  Was glad to pick it up again and finish the sleeves. 
This sweater is sold as either the individual pattern or as a kit.  I ended up buying the kit, but had a few different dye lots of yarn.  (You can buy it with two different shades of pink.) She was wonderful to work with and ended up sending more yarn suggesting I alternate yarns to make the yarns blend a little better.  Can you see it?! 
I adore the little pocket.  You can see the bit of striping better in this photo.  It doesn't really bother me.
While the front is a garter stitch, the back is stockinette.  A purl row up the sleeve gives it a look of a "seam".  Not sure that is completely necessary.  But, might be a nice added bit of interest.

Patten:  Pink Memories
Yarn:  Came as a kit.
Needles:  US 4 and US 5
Mods:  Didn't really make any.  Not sure why, but my neck is a bit "tighter" than I would like.  I may end up re-doing the neck.  Just not right now. 😁
We are headed to the Grand Canyon.  I am so excited!

toasty

Toasty.
Always a fun thing to make.  For yourself or someone else.  I made these for a gift and used the wrong tag.  She absolutely, positively,  can machine wash and dry these!  Cause I made them out of this.
I cast on for a pair of  Toast today.  Of all the pairs I have made, I seriously don't have a single pair left for myself.

making memories

My mom and sisters and I spent last week together in St. Petersburg Florida.  We really loved it there.  Right on the water with great restaurants and cute shops.  Well, I'm not exactly sure about the shops as we didn't do any shopping, but it DID have great restaurants, museums and a beautiful marina. To tell you the truth, we could be anywhere just as long as we spend time together.

How cute is that t-shirt I am wearing?!  Thank you Elizabeth!  I absolutely love it.  I found them here if anyone is interested.

Knitting happened.  Pink Memories was finished.  Back soon with pics.
