not about what you have
or even what you've accomplished
...it's about who you've lifted
up, who you've made better. It's
about what you've given back.
~ Denzel Washington
With everything that has been
going on in my world I wasn't
sure I would be able to finish
the pullover I was knitting for
Emerson, but picking it up
and knitting a few stitches here,
a few stitches there, I was able
to finish it Saturday night. A
gentle blocking and a fast photo
shoot and it's done.
I absolutely love this pattern,
it is very straightforward
and easy to follow. I did make
a few changes, making the ribbing
a little longer and also knitting
the sleeves to full length, but
that is all.
Emerson was thrilled to arrive
and find her knit all ready to
pack for the move to Germany.
I would love to have had a
photo of her wearing it, but
with my summer temperature
there was no way I could ask
that of her, but I did request
a picture when it's worn this
Now to see if I can fiddle with
the numbers so I can knit one
in adult size; it would be just
right for my winter since I
rarely wear a coat.
