FO - Sweater for my granddaughter
Here is a sweater that I just finished for my granddaughter. She calls it her "fweater". She is three. She thinks she knit it because a few times she held the yarn for me while I was knitting. She will look wonderful in it, I hope.

The pattern is from a company called Mary Maxim and is called Snowman Jacket. No. 9061N. The pattern calls for the sweater to be blue with red pockets, but my daughter wanted it in "princess colours" for our little princess, so that is what she got. She does not know about the hat yet. I went on the internet and got the hat pattern at http://tiajudy.com/simplestcap.htm

I used a yarn called Caron Simply Soft Quick. It is soooo soft and wonderful to work with. I had this finished (with your help) in a week.

Here is a picture of the finished project. I've added it as an attachment. I hope that works. Let me know if you can't see it and I'll try it again!

Very nice! I'm sure your G.D. will love it. Children are great to knit for I couldn't see the color very well on my computer.

Lilac and pale pink. They make a wonderful combination. She is blonde with chocolate eyes, so this is going to show off her colouring nicely. Thanks for the compliment!

So adorable! I love the mitten pockets too Is it odd that I want one for me and I'm certainly not 3 years old?

Great job!

I think the hat is perfect with the sweater. I also have to experess my love for the mitten pockets. It's something I know I would have loved when I was a little girl!

One of dgds will be 3 next month with blonde hair and blue eyes. I'm buying that book next week, along with the yarn. It is PERFECT!

The sweater only fits sizes 4 or 6. It might be a while before your little one could fit into it. But I do admit it was the mitten pockets that drew me to the pattern as well.
