And the fun begins with the new project - customized sweater

Recently I had been searching for a hoodie pattern that had a classic look to it. Since I couldn't find one, I chose to go with Lion Brand Lion Cotton knit hooded sweater in the adult version. I am not using cotton because I did not want the hassle of worrying about shrinkage. That was my first adjustment. I did some other little things after taking measurements so it was more custom, and I changed the ribbing. I cannot stress enough whether it is knit or crochet, take measurements when you can…See More

"What is really wonderful is that my daughter loves the handmade items. Some people do not think much of them, but I love to make knit and crocheted items and so does my daughter."

"You are so right about the boy patterns, same for crochet also if you ask me. I did find a pattern that I have started to alter myself. Changing up the knit pattern is a new thing for me. I am still working on my confidence in my skill level so I…"

"The last time I made a hoodie for my son, I just put a hood on a pattern I liked instead of searching for hoodie patterns, because, you are right, they aren't great.  Actually, most knit patterns for boys aren't great."

Geez, sounds like a line from the Ghosthunters show, lol. Anywho, I have finally gotten my grandsons knit pants off my needles. Here they are: I had to add a little double chain (crochet) tie to it, to keep them more snug. It was the first time I ever knit pants for a baby. I am STILL working on fine tuning my stitching together. I…See More

Current task, green shopping bag

Shown here is the final product of my grandson's hoodie sweater. I was very pleased with the outcome. Until I get a frontal shot, here it is:

I am now setting up a pair of knit pants to go with it. It is so great to have little ones to knit and crochet for again!

 

Also, while the pants are on my…
