I started making a sweater for my grandson, just a day or so before our travels south.  He'll be 1 in January, and the request was for a couple of pullover sweaters - light weight, for winter days.

I  looked through my Mom's knitting books, and found a couple of  cute sweaters, size 1 with enough texture to keep me interested.  My problem finding yarn is that I'm allergic to wool, and there is very little synthetic yarn in fingering weight.  My local yarn shop up north only had baby colours, so the first sweater is light blue.

I didn't knit much on our trip down, but I've completed the front and two sleeves, and I'm part-way up the back.  The pattern is easy, just 4 rows, so easy to remember.

I'll be heading out to search for more yarn for another sweater soon.

  1. Sweet gift for a little boy. I get itchy after working with wool for a while, so I look for other types of fiber.
