Give a girl a bouquet of flowers and she’ll know just what to do. This little sweater for Wren was a knit I have planned for her last winter but time got away from me. It is the old growth sweater, slightly modified to omit the leaf/tree lace motif. I knit it in Ozetta’s beautiful soft and sheepy 100% Columbian wool. It will be very warm I think, though she will need a little something for her neck since the neckline of the garment is a bit open. I sewed buttons on this morning, albeit a bit crookedly. She couldn’t wait to wear it. The mornings have grown chilly and cool here, but it is still not quite sweater weather. We pulled a few zinnias from the garden, drying as they wane at summer’s end, still so beautiful. She walked barefoot out to the big maple where the sunlight fell softly through the shade and she let me snap these pictures. I will treasure them forever not because of the sweater but because I sure do adore this beautiful, feisty, sweet little girl.
Almost done with the body of Noah’s sweater and getting ready to split for sleeves. I haven’t knit a sweater bottom-up before, so it will be interesting to do it this way! I love love love it so far. It’s different/challenging enough to keep me interested, but also a very relaxing knit, and who can’t love working with Brooklyn Tweed? I keep worrying it’ll be too small but I *think* it’s good. We’ll see!
Reading Come Thou Long Expected Jesus advent readings with Brandon in the evenings before we fall asleep. I’m also still finishing up Missional Motherhood. Needing some good fiction next, I think.
I’m linking up with Ginny’s weekly yarn along today, where we share what we’re currently reading + knitting.
