Because you asked, Mom

Pictures of the nephew, Kruz, at his 1st birthday party

Where's the cake?

Love me some birthday cake!

And the sweater knit for the boy by his loving auntie:
Kruz's sweater 2

The sweater was knit based on Ann Budd's suggestions for a raglan and used the same Reynolds Utopia yarn I knit his Christmas hat in.

This weekend is another birthday party - niece Katherine turned 5 today and here's her gift:
Katherine's sweater pieces

One back, two sleeves and a front is all done. She'd asked for a rainbow sweater and it's being knit in Paton's Melody in a colorway called Happy Daze. It has nice clear colors (I wish the purple sections had been longer than an inch, thank you very much) but it does have a nice yellow in it. The yellow was important since it's her favorite of all colors. Do you know how hard it is to find a rainbow variegated fit for a 5 year old?

Anyhoo, it's a nice, bulky yarn that's knitting up quickly. Which is good since I need to have it done before we go up to Ellensburg on Friday.

By the way, I did manage to finish the blue baby blanket, have 85% of a baby sweater in Bernat CottonTots complete and have read a couple of books. Just no real blogging progress to show until today.
