Frog Princess Sweater


Corny I know, but yeah, it is nearly Halloween! I have been working on a little sweater set for DD's best friend's baby to be. Daughter's BFF is having a little girl, but the sweater could not be frilly at-all. No pink, no lace, no ribbons. Ah the powers of Ravelry. I had an idea that I wanted to knit a Baby Surprise jacket because I have never made it and oh is it adorable. Easy peasy. Knit in 2 weeks in Cannon's Simply Soft shadows. Hat 64 stitches knit flat. 6 rows of rib. Garter stitch for 6 inches. Decrease 2tog to end, knit the next row. Repeat the Decrease row once more. Cut yarn, slip through the remaining stitches and sew up the back.

Finished Stripes




That's right! Lawn Guy's sweater is done, washed, and blocked! Now mind you, he is a big guy, so lots of yarn was used. I worked on this puppy starting at the beginning of spring until it was a little to warm to worry about him wearing it and put it a side for fall. Well, it's been rather chilly. Also, we are going out of town this weekend for a little outdoor activities. We decided that I needed to get this finished before we leave. Cool! I made it in plenty of time. Only problem is, I barely had this one soaking when he was calling and asking for another. Huh, sure I can do that. Another monster sweater before snow shoveling season. Sigh!
