Something for my Daughter

As you probably already know, I craft for charity. Well, one of the sweaters that we do for babies is from a free pattern on the Bundles of Love website. It was also featured as a tutorial on the mikeyssmail Youtube Channel.

So, Mikey put a challenge out there to see what people could do with this very basic sweater. He gave 2 examples of his own - a Ladybug version and a Bumble Bee version. I did the Pink Ladybug sweater that I showed in an earlier post and also used the same pattern for the bunting.

My 5 year old daughter has been bugging me to make a sweater for her, so I decided to see what I could do. I kept the same stitch count, but used a VERY bulky wool and a larger hook. Here is the result:

New Designs and a limited edition

And a new addition...Milk and Cookies
