knitting by my hands and from my heart

The yarn stash just keeps on growing! I'm a wife, a mom, a sister, a daughter, and a friend who works in Corporate America, lives in the Boston, MA area and is always looking for more time to knit.

Summer '05 bag is finished. . .now working on a cardigan for my nephew.

I went out this morning to Fabric Place and bought cute summer fabric to line my summer bag, finally--now that it is the end of July. . .
**This pattern is from the premiere issue (Fall '04) of Woman's Day Knitting & Crocheting.

I'm currently working on a cardigan for my nephew who was born this past April. It's in Tahki Cotton Classic in a chocolate brown color. I plan to put sports-themed buttons on it when I'm finished.
**The pattern is from the old Knitting Digest called Precious Jewel Baby Set {there's matching hat, booties, and blanket}. It used to be available free online but now that the magazine is Creative Knitting, I don't see it anymore. If interested, I'd email the editor at Creative Knitting and inquire about the July 2003 issue and this pattern.
