Knitting and a Jedi

It is Spring Break and we are planning some serious relaxing.  I am looking forward to some serious knitting time as well.

I just finished a sweater for my sweet little one year old niece.

This is from an Ella Rae book that I bought at my LYS.  The yarn is Ella Rae also.  It’s called Cozy Soft and is an acrylic/wool blend.  It was really soft and nice to work with.  The pattern was great too.  It had a fun stitch pattern which kept it interesting to work on.  I hope little Lila likes it!

A couple of months ago, I made a chicken sweater for a friend.  I can now scratch that off my list of things that I had never made before.  (I don’t know why I took an upside down picture of the sweater.)

I even crocheted a few little flowers for decoration for the little chicken.

I made this for a friend in Colorado who then gave it to a friend who has chickens.  Look what my friend sent me in return!

She is a painter and she painted this for me!  I felt so lucky to receive them!  She does beautiful work.  I love that we traded our work although I think I need to make her something else now because I just love these.

This weekend we are going to go to Comic Con.  David and Davey are getting pretty excited.  Davey has already picked out his Comic Con attire.
