Memory Lane

While browsing my Ravelry notebook, I came across this little sweater I made and I thought to myself, in a lilting southern accent, "My goodness, I have a beautiful niece."  And then, "That is THE cutest little sweater I ever did knit."   That might have been Scarlett O'Hara.
 Soooooh (that's a Minnesota accent) It's sort of cheating to bring up knits from a million years ago and pretend like it's a new knit, but since it's so cute and I really don't have anything new to post regarding fiber artsy stuff, this will have to do.
My little Lizzy moved away to Utah.   I miss her terribly, but we all make a valiant effort to see each other.  Oh, and I gave her the sweetest little toy mouse.  I'll tell you all about it in the next post.  Am I sounding southern again?  Debbie H. - do I capitalize southern?

If you'd like to make an adorable sweater like this for your favorite little one, here are the specs:

Cable Yoke Jacket
by: Kyoko Nakayoshi
Needles: US7 and US8
worsted weight yarn -

GREAT pattern - online help if you get stuck, but you won't.

Yes, you do have a beautiful niece in a beautiful sweater! That sweater is adorable! If my friends would just have one kid instead of two at a time, I'd make them one in a heartbeat. However, knitting two of those jackets at a time gives me pause.

They are totally worth a repost (is that a word?) both the adorable little girl and the beautiful sweater!

Capitalize Southern accent, yup.

That's a great sweater. Looks like it was one she could wear for a while too, start with it almost long and coat-like with rolled up sleeves, grow into it as a regular cardigan. Winner of a project.
