Wow this was definalty a challange for me, esp the intarsia and embroidery. But well worth the out come. This is number one on the lilac background and number two is going to be on a periwinkle background.
It was made with Bernat Satin (My Fav yarn). They are a birthday present for my twin neices, they are going on the big 5.
Thought I would share the work in progress photos.

That's some awesome knittery and stitchery! Is the girl on the front going to be the same for the second one? That really looks good! You're nieces will love them.

Thanks for all the nice comments :)
I got the book at mary maxins, but I have seen it on amazon and at Michaels too.
Iam doing both sweaters the same, there are other characters in the book also, I don't know the proper names, but one is something like ginger snap and another one is an apricot color.
My daughter requested one of the cat custard.
The only adjustment I made to it was to add a buttonhole placket down the right hand shoulder, as the neck openings looked a little tight.
Here's a pic of the lucky little dynamic duo in action.

Those sweaters are amazing. I can only imagine how long it took you to do them. Then again, no I can't. Those girls are gonna be too cute in their sweaters. Make sure you get pics of them in the sweaters. :thumbsup:
