Have yarn– Will crochet

He holds the skeins of yarn in his hands gently… looking at the beautiful blues with a little grin on his face.  He knows these skeins are earmarked for him and this fact excites him… he keeps jumping up and down with them as if they were a new set of Hot Wheels cars.

I plug in my yarn parameters and project preferences on Ravelry and let him sit down at the desk to begin the selection process.  This wee one who rarely uses a computer happily looks through several patterns … he goes back and forth with little comments about buttons and zippers and pockets and hoods.  Many minutes go by.  Many questions are asked and answered.  Finally, he points:

“This one Mamma… make me this one, can you?  Please?  I like it the BEST!”  Ro declares with a chortle and a sweet babyface grin.

And so begins my very first sweater!  I’ll be using Spud & Chloë Sweater in Lake and Malabrigo Rios in Azules.  You can see a bit of it just off to the right in the above photo.  The pattern looks like it should be pretty straightforward – The Just Right Sweater.  I’m off to finish dinner and wind some yarn.  🙂
