This little guy goes to the same kiddo that the hat goes too! I really hope he enjoys him as much as my son does! Lil man LOVES green, so you can imagine!
And then as far as my knitting goes, I have FINALLY figured out how to 'knit 2, purl 2' and I am SOOOOO sooooo happy!! I'm not sure what exactly was my problem with figuring this out, but I've pinned it down to one main thing. The way I was doing my knitting just wasn't working out. I was knitting holding the yarn in my left hand, then when I needed to purl, I was switching it to my right. So, I went on to try and learn how to purl holding in my left.. definite no go there! I can knit very fast holding the yarn in my left hand, so I really didn't want to switch, but in the end I did and I think it has definitely helped me out!
So this is the back of lil man's sweater!! I had to frog the other one because after getting a good few inches in, I decided to measure his chest. Why I didn't do that before I started, I don't know. It was a sad night On The Ridge! The back of the sweater was measuring 14 inches across.. lil man's chest circumference is only 20 inches. Ah.. I was a very sad about this! So I've changed yarns, and I changed the bottom of the sweater because I wasn't liking the way the stockinette stitch was curling. I know that's what it's supposed to do and that's what the pattern calls for, but it would really bug me and I'd be constantly pulling it down on him!
All in all, I think I was very busy in July! Let's hope August is just as productive!
Oh! I almost forgot, I made that bunting I was talking about in my last post! It's very pretty :) Hubby said it looked like we were having a birthday party, but I don't care a bit, I like it!
