A Different Route!

I ripped out the tuck stitch sweater front
because it was way too small.
It will be another idea for another day
I tried my original idea of knitting up the back, 
over the shoulders,
down one front shoulder
and then the other,
join across the neckline and knit down the front body!

It worked!

Now I will pick up stitches for the cuffs, neck and bottoms for some ribbing 
so I can then seam it all together!

(the yarn is Red Heart gradient in greys)


  1. With the orange waste yarn in there, it looks PERFECT for Halloween. LOL

  2. You're having waaaay too much fun with that knitting machine. 😉😎 The sweater looks great and so do the cookies.

  3. did you use the cookies as a prop - or as fortification during the knitting?:) and the orange doesn't look all that bad with the grey shades... though the boys might think differently:) I hope the little one is on the mend!

  4. Did the tuck stitch add a lot of bulk or was that just a trick of the lens? I love the gradient yarn, may have to look into that for kids knitting myself.

  5. You are doing great . I admire how you aren't afraid to rip. I just did the same thing on my sock toe as a matter of fact. I am in no hurry and would rather get it right. :)

  6. I love that yarn — what an attractive boy-sweater!

  7. Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog! If you can't get the blog to accept a comment-email me! If you don't have a blog yourself, use my email so I can then email you back-I love to respond to those who leave comments! Thanks!


I dug out several pairs of light weight summer pants that fint when I had the 25lb weight gain last Spring and decided to do some alteration...
