What I've been doing

I do hope all is well with everyone. It's really hard to believe this year is almost gone. It has gone by too fast for me.

Besides continuing to suppose Bridge and Beyond, I have decided to try and knit an adult size sweater. Yep! For me. I have tried a few patterns but, did not make it very far.
I belong to a few groups on Ravelry but, one in particular is BabyCocktails. She designs very pretty sweater patterns and a couple of hat patterns. These are not free patterns. She names her patterns after drinks. Gimlet, Irish Coffee, mulled Cider but, one in particular is called White Russian. Also, some of her patterns are pieced together. This one is made top down in one piece, putting the sleeve stitches on holders then, coming back and finishing them. I bought some Berroco Vintage yarn to make this sweater with. I love how soft it is. Will post aa WIP when I get home from work tonight. I just hope the yarn isn't too dark to show the details. Knitting something this size can be quite daunting but, I am not letting myself think about that. It's done when it's done. I'm in no hurry and trying to enjoybthe experience of something new.

Have a great day.

Until next time...

Good luck with your sweater. I made a baby sweater once but that is as far as my sweater making has gone. :-) Always nice to see you here. Hope life is treating you well.

The pearl bracelet is adorable! I would love to have my pearl necklace wear that. I love the jewelry set, really wish we sent for it since it's sooo cute!
freshwater pearl bracelet we bought about 1.5 months in advance since she probably won't grow too much in that time period.
