Finally the pink baby sweater

But first, we dance!, no, wait, that's from The King and I.

But first, the outrageous colors of tree death aka 'fall colors'

Back yard-regular-sweet gum,

Waaay in the back, some oaks, and hedges. Also two huge piles of fallen trees to burn next weekend. (DH took this one. Our church's back yard)

Next, comes the skeining of the ravelled 'what-was-I-thinking' sweater. The niddy-noddy made by DH. It is his own design of what I described to him that I needed. He is brilliant! You will not find a better design engineer. But, I digress.

Here are four skeins, all properly curled before their straightening bath, and subsequent weighting on the clothes line--probably tomorrow.

I hung them on the back of the chair, and now they look like a pretzel. (to the upper left you will notice DH's creative hand, on the mouse)

Finally the long awaited for pink baby sweater. Drummmmmm rolllllll....
Just needs the buttons.

And, the very lovely, accompanying pink baby cap.

And a close up of the cuff. Isn't it cute? Soooooo tiny.

The sweater is this one, and the cap is my design. Just regular 5 DPNs, make a tube, decrease, and there you go.
I'll leave you with this,

"For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?" Heb 1:5

In His hands, ^__^

The pink baby sweater is lovely and so cute. Guess I'll be getting those knitting needles out soon for the next grandbaby. How exciting is that!

The Fall photos are lovely too.
