Two weeks ago Wee C asked me to make her a cropped sweater; she was pretty specific about its angled "hemline" and one-button closure. This came sometime after she'd requested that we cut off the bottom half of her white cotton cable cardigan (that's half of a twin set). I found myself up to the challenge, stash-dove for some Paton's Kroy, and grabbed The Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns. I doubled the yarn and did a quick swatch on US7s, then cast on for the Child's Raglan. Garter-stitch edges and three-quarter sleeves were my "design modifications." Ten days later I was sewing on the button she selected and crochet-chaining a loop. It's a tiny thing, but so is she!
She's not even seven, but she said, "Mom, you, like, made me a sweater in a week!" Almost, love. Even faster than I whipped up Gesta on 10.5s. At least the sudden spring chill gave me a chance to debut the vest on Easter. (Those matching Fibonacci sox are done, too.)
We're on spring vacation now and I've brought along a scarf project, of all things!
