I got the sweater all done that I made for my three year old grandson Drew. :)
Mistakes but learned a lot. The left arm up in the shoulder area got messed up. It was longer than it should have been and I sewed it into place anyway. Lot to learn but happy with it,
Whew!

:happydance: Wow, thanks everyone. You all make me feel 'so' good. :)
I had my two month anniversary on Thursday. The yarn shop owner wants to put a photo of my sweater on her site so she can show what a newbie can do. Isn't that cool????????????
Enjoy your Sunday,
Susie :XX:

Look at you go Susie! Great job on the sweater - I definitely could not have done that when I hit my 2 month knitting mark. It looks really good Susie, you should be very proud!

FiberGirl,
Thanks.
I'm SURE you could have done it too at two months but that sure was a nice compliment.

Hi Kelly,
Thanks for liking the sweater.
The yarn is Encore by Plymouth Yarn. It is knitting worsted weight. 75% Acrylic and 25% wool. It is what the yarn shop gal suggested.
The pattern is one I bought at her shop. It is called the Roll Raglan in crew & mock turtle-neck by Yankee Knitter Designs. It has Child sized 1 to 14 and Adult 36" to 50".
I found it on line at the link below but I'm sure there are tons of other places:

Happy Monday,

Ingrid,
Well, thank you VERY much. It was right after meeting up with an internet friend I have. She lives about an hour away. We have met for lunch a few times and I took her for her first tattoo. :)
It was a good year that year........I did have a glow. LOL.
You are so sweet to me,
Susie
