2006 FO - Childhood from Knitty

In my last three weeks of pregnancy I was bored and looking for something to do, something to take my mind off the fact that I was due any day and nothing was happening - so I started on the larger sweater which had been in the plans for months - I had bought the buttons in June (and this was December!)

I got 2 sleeves (I always start with the sleeves), the back and one front done in under 3 weeks and then took a break my last week to begin a hand embroidered quilt for the baby.

Three weeks after the baby was born the first one was done. Well being that the baby was a girl, I felt compelled to have them have matching sweaters.

So here are my bumblebee sweeters complete with bumble bee buttons!

Lynne, the projects are great. The bumblees are so cute. Wow, the hats are adorable that's quite a challenge. I'm hoping when Zachary starts school in fall I can take knitting classes.

I love the sweaters.
I am completely grandmother, who I adored, and had wonderful talent would disown me due to my lack thereof.

Wow, those are great! Great pattern, and I can see that they're beautifully smoothly knit. I feel like I've been living with them in the house for weeks, having been hearing about them and all...

I don't have a knitting blog yet, but I promise a post about these opera glove cabled mitts I'm doing, when I finally finish them!

Oh Lynne. We need to team up some day.
They're beautiful. Send a pic of them on the models!
