Update on Little Lady’s W.I.P.

Update on Little Lady’s W.I.P.

Last day of January already… yikes! It's been a busy week, but I have made time to work on the new sweater for the Little Lady. I shared a link to the pattern last week… a lovely sweater knit in 1 piece. I've finished the back, one sleeve, and half of another. Cruisin' πŸ™‚

I was going to make a skirt to go along with the sweater, but Michelle suggested I make the adorable reversible pants found in Anna Maria Horner's book Handmade Beginnings.

Aren't these sweet?

It's hard to see in the photos, but the yarn I'm using in the sweater has flecks of brown and green. I hit my stash and was able to come up with fabric to make 2 pairs of reversible pants that will look wonderful with the sweater.

So, the plan… finish the sweater this week… sew the pants next week… then I'll be taking to train to Wisconsin for a week of playing with the Little Lady. Can hardly wait πŸ™‚

  1. I have that book and love it. I made the pants and I just love them! The rolled up cuffs are so cute. I did make mine with some fabrics I had, and I want to make more with more exciting prints. I love the peace signs and hearts. Those pants will be awesome. I also like the green fabric a lot. Both sets of material should make up great. Can’t wait to see them done.

  2. Such a cute little sweater! As a beginning knitter (of just a few weeks) I can’t wait to be able to knit sweaters. And socks! (really excited about socks) Anyway, love it. The pants are super cute too. Little Lady’s going to look so darling. Lucky girl.

    1. This is a great sweater for beginners because you just need to knit, purl, and increase. Because it is just one piece, it makes it super easy to stitch together, too! Have fun on your knitting journey πŸ™‚

  3. Love, love, love these! The little lady is going to look gorgeous!

    1. She'll be stylin' πŸ™‚ Michelle wants to make a pair of capris out of the peace sign print, with green cuffs. Adorable on big girls too πŸ™‚ I'm almost done with the sweater. It's going to be so cute because the sweater sleeve's are cuffed as are the pants. Can't wait to see her in them. I'm thinking she needs some hair doo-dad, too πŸ™‚
