A couple of pictures from the beaches in MI from last Oct.
OTN: I have a child's sweater just coming off. I need to finish seaming it up and it will be done! (Picture to be posted tomorrow!) Yarn is sitting here next to me waiting to get cast on for the next sweater! I do have yarn gathered up and cast on for a mitered square sweater. I also have a couple hats on needles and an Irish Hiking Scarf.
There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan
that can succeed against the Lord.

I have to say that I think Zinnia's are one of my most favorite annual flowers!
They are so bright and hardy! The butterflies love them, and they are great for photo ops!!

Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind of the sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace.

Last week I received a Creative Knitting magazine and found a pattern for this adorable baby sweater!! So I spent the weekend making two of them! This one is my favorite. (I'll post the other one tomorrow.) Both sweaters will find their way to the local Job & Family Services Office to keep a small child warm and cuddly! (and hopefully to brighten the care-givers day with these bright colors!! LOL!)
Again, I used a skein of the Caron Dazzle Ombre, along with some Bernat Super Value for the sleeves, collar and edging and K-Mart brand Sayelle for the body. I followed the pattern for the 24 mo. size on 10 1/2 needles.
And a special THANK YOU to Amy for gifting to me the book that inspired me to start embroidering on my knitting!

Knitted Child's Sweater
I use the basic knit pattern that I found here:
Only, I do my own thing with it. Like for this one I used a Thermal Underwear Stitch stitch pattern. I just thought it would keep a small child a bit warmer to have some 'cling' to the sweater.
This one is worked with RedHeart SuperSaver yarn in Winsor Blue

Just as the result of one trespass was condemnation for all men, so also the result of one act of righteousness was justification that brings life for all men.
For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will made righteous.
