These were for a shower over the past weekend for a friend who is expecting twins. I used to dislike garter stitch but thought it looks good in this sweater pattern. The pattern is from LionBrand and calls for organic cotton. Unfortunately it wasn't released in time but I was able to find a lovely (HA) acrylic blend. I know the Mom and other daughter are allergic to dogs so I thought it best to avoid wool.
I'm also knitting patches for our fuzzy feet. I'm basically going to felt large swatches of leftover yarn and then cut new soles and attach them to our existing fuzzy feet. Not as exciting as the sweaters but sorry no pictures.
I've only had one entry in my contest THANKS Kristen. I have a feeling she's going to be the lucky winner for naming the little Singer Golden Touch. I've decided what the prize will be but it's going to be a Surprise so I won't reveal it until the winner receives it. This little machine made me realize how many sewing machines I've worked on in my life. We had similar singers in Home Ec class and I remembered the sound they made, it really took me back to Mrs. Osbornes class in the mid 70s!
