I have finished several sweaters this year but only have a picture of a few of them. :thumbsup:
The purple ,pink, and blue ones are adapted from a Sirdar pattern. The purple one was done from an older Sirdar Baby yarn. I LOVE Sirdar yarn.:yay:
I will post photo of a hoodie with a kangaroo type pocket in front later.

My pictures were too large. It was my first time trying to unload. I have to figure out how to make thumbnails! Sorry. Thanks for looking. I will try to figure all this stuff out one of these days!

If your pics are saved on your computer, then open a program called Paint in your programs and then your accessories. When you have it open, click file at the top left hand side. Click on Open. A window will pop up. Search for your picture where you stored it. Click on picture and then click on open. Then click on Image in the middle at the top of the main window once you see your picture come up in the main window. Click on resize/skew. In the horizontal and vertical type in 30 (instead of the 100 that is in both boxes). Then click ok. Then go back to File and click on save as. Save it with the same name you already gave it only add "2" at the end so that you know it is the smaller sized picture. Good luck!

Lets see if it worked. Two of them worked. One was still too large. But now I have it. I suppose I could reduce the third one again. Would I still use the same 30 and 30? Thanks again. Sharon

Thanks for the tips. I did reduce the other photo a second time and it worked.
Here is the pink sweater and the blue hoodie. My grandson is also modeling the green sweater with the water on it in the photo under my sign in name.:aww:

Thanks for the site Jan and I really appreciate all your help!

You're most welcome. Glad you could figure it out with my directions. If it was still to large with 30 + 30 try using 15 + 15 and see if that works for you. Seems to have done the trick though. Beautiful knitting. Your work is beautiful.

Happy Knitting!

Thanks for the compliment. Your tips worked wonderfully. I did go back and use the one thumbnail and then resized it to 30x30 again. It seemed to work fine.

All the sweaters look sooo good! I especially love the photo of DGS, what a cutie! And such a pretty blue sweater. Glad you were able to post the pics! :thumbsup:
