~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~ with the lovely ladies at Like Mother, Like Daughter
Sunshine is so excited to be a test knitter for a dear friend's newly written sweater pattern. She so desperately wants to make "real things". She's been making socks for years now and while she still enjoys that, she longs to one day throw on a handmade sweater knit by her own hands.
She's tried a couple of times on her own without any guidance and learned a lot about the importance of sizing and gauge and proper measuring. She knows so much more now... so I'm excited for her and proud of her taking on this project! Since I consider this part of her education, we made the investment in a good quality yarn and she will be taking her "job" very seriously. I told her I plan on using her sweater for Cupcake this fall! If this works, I think it just might be time for her to try again with something she could wear! Can you hear her SQUEEing as she read this?
This girl right here... she cracks me up! She also talks constantly, refuses to let anyone else read her a story and insists on trying to drag me everywhere she wants to go... but she makes me laugh.
