That is just gorgeous ArtLady!! When I read the thread name I somehow got "for Grandmother" out of it, and was looking to see what you had knit for grandma.

It sounds like you have big plans for more GD sweaters. I can't wait to see them. BTW your GDs have very nice names.

I knit my first baby sweater 33 years ago--my first sweater, ever. The top-down part was easy until I got to the design on the body of the sweater. 100 stitches, increased to 300 stitches and knit for 2 rows, then decreased down to 100. Over and over again. I stuck with it, and it was well used. I wish the person I'd lent it to had returned it. I'd love to see all the mistakes in it with my more experienced eye.

My grandsons have a pile of sweaters that I made for them, but they don't like wearing sweaters. The best I can get are hats, mittens and scarves on them. I don't see any grand daughters in the near future, either. Whenever I hear of an aquaintence having a girl, I go to town, though.

I have two grandsons, and neither one of them will wear sweaters. Even have some granddaughters who fight their mothers about wearing sweaters. I don't knit sweaters for them. I buy them what they like to wear! Why make trouble for their mommas? Raising kids is hard enough without the "I won't wear it" fight! In my day, my kids wore what I put on 'em...period. Today's kids seem to be a little different!

That's for sure. I told my son over and over that a sweater is something a child puts on when his mother is cold. One day he told me that a sweater is something he takes off at the bus stop; he was nine, so after that I just let it go. Fortunately, he was smart enough to wear a coat or sweater when needed.

But, back to you: that is a wonderful little sweater!

Sweet of you to find it for me!
