Another charity baby sweater done

                                                     Pattern link        

       I needed a feel good fix. That is for me a baby sweater.  This sweater could have been cuter. I used the yarn I saw laying on top of my basket. I ran out of the blue for trim.  I fixed it with what  I think this is eyelash yarn in the brown. I held a brown worsted with it to stabilize the fur.  The blue yarn is Cotton Ease. Both the sks were without wrappers, but you can always tell Cotton Ease.  The hood I dec. 3 times on the last row in the center. No decrease on sleeves I went down a hook size for 2 rows.

This is tiny.  I used a button and loop for the closing.  With the dec on the hood in the center I don't think you will need a tie.   I just did not feel like looking up yarn and being all crazy about it.  You know those times when you just have to do something with your hands.   I need the light on, and close to me for the T-towels. Its so hot I put them aside.

I need to find another place to send my things for charity.  The last place did not work out.  This Fall I will make up a box to send somewhere.  I like sending things out in one go.  We no longer have a post office it was flooded  out years ago from a little river that ran through the little town. The Gov. refused to replace it.  Now it is a major thing to go to the larger town to mail things.

I can't sleep once again.   My mom is not doing well.  That my dears presses heavy on my heart.

Hugs and I hope you give great kindness, and receive it .

The baby sweater is very nice. The church still needs things. I am not sure this will work. It is not letting me comment. Hugs to you Rose
