SummerTan's Progress Thread

I've never started a progress thread, but I thought it would be fun & motivating! Biggrin

I am working on a hooded sweater for my DD, since she has outgrown most of the sweaters I made her when I was PG.
It's actually an easier pattern than I anticipated, which is great since I have endless interruptions and *always* have to drop my work in the middle of a row.

I'm making it in a size 2, so she'll have a lot of room to grow and I'll dress it up with nice buttons and maybe embroidery depending how it goes.

Working on the back..

Looks great so far! Do you have a pic or link to what it'll look like when it's done?

This is the pattern (also found on the Bernat webpage) & yarn that I am using...I love Caron simply soft, so I worked on the gauge so I could use it with this pattern. Biggrin

This is my progress so far...the back and two front panels. (this photo better shows the color which is grape)
Since taking this photo I also have almost completed a sleeve. I was really slowed down by my dd's teething!

Finished with all the knitting & assembling! Just in time for my daughter's first birthday.
My model! Biggrin (I made it in a size 2, so it's big on her)

Then I added the buttons & decided it needed to be glammed up a bit...so I tried my hand at crochet flowers...My first time picking up a crochet hook in about a decade! :eek:
The finished sweater!!!! Yahoo

It's adorable. And, it should fit perfect this time next year (or even late this winter).
