A few years go our Colorado/Minnesota friends welcomed a granddaughter into the world. Through the years I have made Mak many hand knit items. Last year they welcomed another baby girl into their family. I kept planning to knit AK a sweater, but just never got around to it. So this year the push was on to get matching sister sweaters made. I got Mak’s done in 6 days in March. AK’s took a bit of time. I had it almost done, but then decided it was the wrong size. Ripped it out and restarted, and it sat for a long while looking like this.
Since we would be driving right by the grandbabies’ home town I thought it would be fun to present the sweaters in person. So I took the collar with me and proceeded to knit on the sweater during our drive out to Colorado. And soon the sweater looked like this.
Close, but still a ways to go. Over the next few days in between hikes and fires and food I was able to finish the sweater and thought I would be able to gift it on our return home. But plans for leaving changed and we ended up driving by their exit at 10:30 at night. Much to late to see baby girls. So we kept on driving and will happily be able to meet the newest babe on her 1st birthday in August!
