I do not knit. That is, I have not been successful with knitting in the past. Crocheting has always come to me very naturally. In fact, I crocheted all the lace on my wedding gown. But knitting has always been hard for me to enjoy with ease.
Silas, on the other hand, is an wonderful knitter. Recently he's been making a habit of knitting more often. This is the scarf he is currently knitting for me.
Inspired by my husband's skill I bought a pair of needles and decided to brush up on my knitting.
This is Gideon's dolly. The dolly's name is "Baby". (I don't believe in naming toys that don't belong to me.)
Gideon loves her.
And loves to give her kisses.
But despite Baby's many charms, Baby needs some clothes.
I decided to knit Baby a sweater. Nothing complicated, just four rectangles pieced together, a front, back and sleeves.
I played around a bit with some simple stitches and this was the result.
I'm pretty happy with it as it actually looks like a sweater!
