Another charity baby sweater done
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 .
