Fall means sweaters! I’m a jacket fiend, so naturally I want Abbi and Ella to have all-the-jackets!
So when my sister-in-law made THE cutest little sweater for my niece I knew I needed to whip one up for Abbi too. The Pattern Came from The Velvet Acorn (lots of cute stuff!), and you can find it HERE.
And *ahem* by whip one up… I mean take two weeks to make this darn thing. I’ve crocheted things before but never an article of clothing (beyond hats), so some of these things were a little new to me. And being a visual learner meant there were a few times I had to look up the right youtube video to figure out what the heck I was doing. Usually it was way easier than I thought, I just have mental blocks when it comes to reading instructions I’ve never done before.
Overall I think it turned out pretty darn cute! I love the oatmeal color with the darker flecks in it. And I like that it has a bit of growing room for the rest of this fall/winter season!
And after a couple days of teething hell with this little lady, it brightened both our mornings to get outside and run around for a few!
Aren’t those buttons the perfect coordinating find? I about swooned when I found them! Abbi agreed because she willingly let go of the other ones I had already found to take these ones in hand instead. :)
Yay for a fun, use-able fall project! Makes me want to go get cozy! Is it too early to start a fire in the wood stove yet? :)
