Here's the second sweater that was knitted for Jack. Made with Encore DK from Plymourth Yarn, double knitting weight, 75% Acrylic , 25% Wool with needle sizes 3 and 6. A couple of months ago, before Jack was born, my husband and I had been to Appleton, WI and I wanted to go to the yarn store and indulge in some fiber therapy. Well, I walked into Iris Fine Yarns and guess what? Mary Elizabeth was there. We were both so surprised to run into each other like that. And we had a good time while the husbands hooked up in the parking lot outside. Talk about co-incidence!
My knitting teacher and friend, Mary Elizabeth and her hubby, my 'troublemaker' friend Dean had a baby boy a few weeks ago. So what is more fitting than to knit sweaters for the baby? Well, here is the first of the two sweaters I knitted for little Jack. OK, so it's boring but hey, it's one I'm familiar with. It's the same Dale of Norway pattern but just in stockinette stitch with a little experimentation in colour.
