Ribbed Jacket Finished


It has been quite a long time since my last post, but I'm back!
During my week and a half hiatus I have managed to finish another beautiful ba
by sweater, this one from Debbie Bliss Special Knits, the cute Ribbed Jacket and ofcourse since I joined Project Spectrum I thought why not do it in Banana Yellow. I am currently in the process of working out some yellow booties to go with it. The flower's not actually part of the sweater, but I thought I would add it for some spring flair! :-)
It was yet another quick knit, that's why I'm starting a section on my side bar called "Jenn's Knit It Quick Picks", so if you're in need of an immediate gift or just instant gratification I'll have some recommendations! :-)
I've also cast-on my second Simply Lovely Lace Sock, so that is now on it's way to being finished so I can start my new project below.

I've never made a sweater for myself, so for my birthday last month I was gifted many balls of yarn from my mother-in-law
Rhonda to do the sweater I've had my eye for a few months. It's just a simple sweater from Very Easy Vogue, One sweater 4 ways, I'm doing the sweater that you can see in the picture, it's the longer version with the furry collar. I'm very excited to start it because I don't knit very much for myself, always for everyone else! The sweater will be made using Paton's Decor in aubergine and Lily Chin Nolita.
With all the sun and warm weather last week, Paisley got to go to the park nearly everyday. Here's some cuteness factor to go along with the beautiful weather we've been having.

Yeah you're back! Wondered where you'd gone to....the sweater is perfect! Love the colour, it is so adorable! The yarn and book from your MIL looks interesting; can't wait to see you work on the sweater - need help you know we will do our best. I agree with Rhonda, you can do it!

Your daughter is such a cutie patootie!
