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. 🙂
