Taking a second...er...seventh...look at something...

DoooDaaaahh...I know that language barrier is a barrier, but, being that 'I dare' to 'figure out' stuff...I begun to cast on...knit...unravel...cast on...knit...unravel...and so on, and so on. You know what I'm talking about, don't you?

I was 'bound and determined' to knit this baby sweater, and watched this video more than 10 times, stopping and counting. After many attempts, I think, I have it figured. Obviously the stitch is not the same, but I'll get that one soon, also. (The Lord opening my understanding.)

I never heard from Tessituras, but maybe she has no way of translating into English like I have noone who can help me with Brazilian/Portugese. Her blog is so cute, I enjoy the pictures she posts. I can understand one word in each paragraph...maybe.

So here we are:

I've come to the sleeves and will do this stitch that I sort-of made up...I know, I know it probably exists in some book or blog already...

I'm pleased with the results.

Looking pretty good as is, but I will finish the sleeves.

Almost finished with the 'swastika' blanket...I'll show you later. The EVIL SYMBOL almost disappears now that it's all sewn. (my people were right!)
I'll leave you with this:

"How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver! " Proverbs 16:16
In His hands, ^__^

What a sweet little sweater! I think you "figured" pretty well.

Blessings to you...can't wait to see the finished blanket.

That's going to be so pretty when it's finished. I have some pretty wool to knit up for the granddaughters but no idea what to make with it. I could do a scarf for #1 but #2 is probably too young for a scarf and it could pose a hazard. Perhaps I need to search the 'net but then I don't understand Brazilian either.

wow that is so pretty, did you make up that pattern just by watching the video? Well done.
