As some of you know, we have moved three times since October 2009. So we have very few decorations anymore. What we do have is in our storage unit which is tiny. I don't have the room to go through each box and look for things.

Sophia and I watched Stolen today.
It stars Jon Hamm, Josh Lucas, Rhona Mitra and even "Dawson", yes James Van Der Beek.

I found here. http://www.petitepurls.com/basics/b_garterhood.html
I followed the directions except for knitting front. I knitted both sides of the front after the split. To me it's easier to knit both sides at once and then they are even.
Since this is a sweater for a new baby I chose to use an acrylic yarn so there is no allergic reactions from yarn. Acrylic can be thrown in the washer. The yarn I used was Caron Simply Soft Eco. It was nice to work with.

I am using the yarn that the pattern is written for but you could use any #4 yarn. This yarn called Bamboo Ewe is a blend of bamboo and wool. It knits very nicely. The only thing I don't like is you cannot throw it in the washer.

I am knitting this hat for Sophia. http://www.stitchnationyarn.com/Patterns/free-pattern-all-day-beret.html
It's an easy knit in the round hat. So far it's looking very pretty. I will post a photo of my work.
The camera is in the car so i have to remind Frank to bring it up tonight.
