Little things & Big things
Hi, folks! I have been working on my first sock (I will wait and post pictures when I have finished the second sock...) and the low-cost version of the Portuguese Fisherman's sweater for my husband (see photo below). It is taking me so long to do this sweater because in the meantime I have knitted sweaters for my grandchildren (boy age 6, girl age 5) (see photos below). I have successfully conquered continental knitting (so the fair isle work you see on my grand daughter's sweater was done with both yarns at once - one traveling continental style, the other English style!). I am so good, I don't know why they don't pay me more! Little Audrey (aka Audrey the Modest)

Everything looks fabulous! What exactly do you mean by "low-cost version"??? What kind of yarn are you using? It looks beautiful!

Everything looks lovely! Congrats on making the switch! I've heard it's good for color work.

GREAT job!
