I have another WIP that I have marked off of my to do list to share with you today! I had made one of these little sweaters back in April of 2011 (Cutie Tootie) and a month after 
started this one. (Cuddle Muffin

I had seen the pattern Lillieput and loved it, but at the time didn't want to spend $7.00 for that pattern for just one size. So, I opted for the free pattern, Short Rows Baby Jacket. This pattern worked fine, but does have it's flaws. I think the neck comes out way to large and the sleeves too narrow. Instead of picking up stitches around the neck, I crocheted 2 rows of sc. I also added crochet loops for button holes. I think this could be used for a boy, but seems better suited for a girl. To me this pattern looks more girly anyway.

I may end up purchasing the other pattern anyway as I do love it. I still need to sew my patch on the first one, but have decided not to sew a patch to this one. My Ravelry notes are linked above. Thanks for taking time to look!

I've been trying to finish up some of my WIP's (work in progress) before knitting anything new. Which by the way is extremely difficult. LOL So, the first WIP that I really wanted to finish was my "Something Sky Blue" cardigan. I started this project in April of 2007! I had my VSG this past March 2012 and have lost over 100 lbs. since June of 2011. So I figured it was time to finish this so I could at least wear it for a while.

I was pretty happy with how it turned out. I opted for no button and used a shawl pin instead. It's not perfect and oh my I am such a better knitter than I used to be. I see so many sloppy stitches and should I ever make this again I know the next will look much improved.
Here are my Ravelry Notes and the pattern is called "Something Red" by Wendy Bernard.
Thanks for taking time to look!
