lucy's sweater



i knit for a living. so it's rare for me to take the time to knit for myself. or for family. i wanted to knit a sweater for lucy (my 5 year old grand daughter) over the holidays. so when we went into st. john's before christmas, i brought a pattern book of sweaters and lucy chose the one she wanted. and then we went to a good yarn and lucy chose her wool (a gorgeous lilac cashmere/merino). i'm on the first sleeve now. this is my holiday bliss...

Hi Shawn,
That is a beautiful sweater and a lovely colour that she has chosen!
Eira (my daughter) and I stopped out to Spun (the yarn shop in Burlington)and she chose some yarn for hat, scarf and finderless gloves.
I had some of your yarn with me and I left them your business card ... if you chose to get in contact with them let me know!
All the very best wishes,
Barbara
