Second Gold






This was actually finished yesterday, but the ungrateful tyke independent, strong-willed toddler, wouldn't put it on and pose. I'm very proud of Kate's sweater because I finally figured out how to do the seams properly and they look really good. Not to mention, I did it with a horrible cold, when I would much rather have been sleeping.






Unfortunately, I couldn't keep going forever and when I tried to sew together her doll's sweater, things didn't go so well. I'll fix it up when I get better. I may also re-do Emma's sweater now that I know how to seam.

Thanks Michi! I nearly had a meltdown last night when she didn't even want to try it on, but that's just because I'm so tired and sick. I'm crawling through the day right now.

Thanks Patti! The sleeves really were quite tricky (I think you're the one who warned me about them) and I had to do some fudging to make it work on the first sweater.
