    Cool Two sweaters

    The first is the pink one I finished last month. I finally got around to taking pics (I've been wearing it lol). I love this sweater. It was such a quick knit (started 9/12 and finished 9/20) and it's comfy as all get out!

    And this is ds's hoodie. It's a Christmas present. The only thing I have yet to do is sew on the front pocket and weave in a couple of ends. This was a very fast knit too. I started it 10/9 and finished it 10/12 (except the pocket/weaving in).

    Holy cow I love the pink sweater! You did a great job. That sweater looks gorgeous. I bet it is warm and cozy and I love the old wooden button! It's neat to add something old to something newly made. I really like the colors you chose for you ds's hoodie. Bright and vibrant. I can't believe how quickly you were able to knit those, all of your family will be toasty this winter.

    Lovely. Now, what patterns did you use?

    I'm trying to gear up for a vest ... and then someday take the step to sweaters.

    Very nice! The most I've been able to accomplish so far is a shrug. I am working my way up to a sweater.

    That's incredible. I'm still working on small projects and looking forward to someday being able to knit a sweater. Those are both very nice.

    The pink one is Emerald from Knitty.com and the hoodie is Santa Cruz Hoodie from Knit 2 Together book.

    I think I'm going to make another hoodie for my oldest ds. I still have yet to sew the pocket on the first one lol.
