Mini Mouse Sweater ( I don't want to get in trouble with Disney;) I love this yarn..yarn..Hat pattern is mine and I am really proud of it. app is mine I saw one on esty after I had started this and since its not made the same way I feel comfortable not buying it. My mini app was made not breaking the yarn from beginning till the end not even for the ears..graph like. I can tell you this is much cuter in person...honest. The booties are Sylver Designs crocheted booties. I always knit them, but not this time. Sweater pattern
I should not call this a Peter Rabbit Sweater, but I am going to anyway. I loved the little blue sweater maybe because I can't pull off really super cute boy sweaters. I came really close this time. Sweater pattern
The yarn is I Love This Yarn. The apps are mine rev sc around the sweater. The hat is mine and I don't like it...going to make a brown bunny hat with soft pink ears. The hat will get blue booties and will be given away separately.
If I can do the Mini app again maybe a Mickey sweater someday. Dad's surgery is Wed at 6:15 am that means getting up at 4:00am to be there on time...my dears hold me close...I will be gone for a little while. Hug my Bugs

I have the big eye as grandma would say. I cannot sleep. I have had the GKs for 4 days. We stayed up late and slept in. I can't seem to get back on track.
I am over half done on the shell blanket. I am slowly quilting the quilt (will be much more on that when it is done)
The sweater is very cute a lovely little pattern and there are many more to choose from. Sweater Cotton yarn and rubber buttons. The hat is and Angel Craft pattern and you must be a member in case you are it is the baby floppy brim hat. The booties are the fake Mary Jane's
The set was all made with cotton yarn and I just rev. sc around the sweater. The hat I made adjustable with a tie and made a hatband in contrasting color to hide the tie. The flowers were just rip offs of the buttons to make it seem more a set.
I am proud I have made several different sweater patterns from my folder I have had since the 90s. I always meant to make at least one of each, but never have. I need to knit one now. I want to make the garter st. beribboned sweater one of these days. I think this soft yellow one is adorable very sweet pattern.
I have many steps to take in the morning. July and August are busy months for us on the side of the hill.
My dears may you have as much pleasure in your life this week as you can endure. I think I could stand a bunch wish it back.
Edit GOOD GREIF!!! I forgot to put the yellow centers in the flowers. Think yellow centers for I am not taking new pics...it does add zip to the hat and booties.
