Babies and Sweaters

Where to start? Quite a few things have happened since my last post a couple weeks ago.

First I finished the new version of Dora in my Classic Merino Superwash Sport yarn. I made a couple small changes, including changing the neck shaping method to German short rows. I love these! One of Dee O’Keefe’s patterns introduced them to me and I decided that would work better for the neck than the way I did the proto type.

I have the pattern all written up and am knitting up the second size in my Organic Cotton Sport. I am reasonably confident in the math for this size and the large but won’t know for sure on the yardage estimates until they have been test knit.

I will have it for sale this coming weekend at the Shepherd’s Harvest Festival which I am currently en route to as I write this post. I have stopped on the way up in Rockford, IL and will arrive in Minnesota tomorrow afternoon. I will have the pattern online at the website and Ravelry very soon too. I will let you know when that happens.

Oh and one more really exciting thing happened. The real Dora has arrived and we are smitten with her tiny self. This is my fifth grandchild and fourth granddaughter. Smile
