Sweater







I finally did it! I had been wanting to knit a sweater for Zachariah for a while now. I didn't know if I'd be able to complete the whole thing. But, I did it!

I found an easy pattern from Lion Brand Yarn's website. I used I Love This Yarn acrylic yarn in Burnt Pumpkin from Hobby Lobby. Zachariah picked out the color. I was hoping for a nice green or blue. But it turned out great!

I was able to get it done so quickly. It took my less than a week, and that wasn't even working on it all the time like I sometimes do with a project. I think I'll be getting some more yarn and making a few more soon.

Edited to add: I almost forgot. I got this done just in time for Zachariah to wear it to church Sunday. So many people knew I'd been working on it, so it was neat to see it completed. The best part is he wore it all day then cried when I made him take it off to put his pajamas on for bedtime. Aww!
