this past week has been beyond cold! we have seen temps with that minus sign in front of double digits. we have been colder than chicago!
now i love it! it's the weather that knitters dream layer all that wonderful, lovingly knitted wear on layer by layer.
sorry kids that i didn't finish your sweaters yet but know i have been thinking about those sweaters and you...hehe.
i finished gramps and this adorable quilt for a "grand-nephew" by the name of jack.
the quilt pattern is something i made up as i sewed along and am very happy with the end results.
love my juki...this baby quilted up in a snap!
the sweater looks like a gramps sweater and i think that new borns, though beautiful, kinda look like old men in that infant stage. i need to put on the leather buttons then both items are off to chicago where it is cold but not as frigid as the rockies are right this minute.;0

It certainly looks like Christmas. Beautiful knitting; some very lucky recipients.

Oh Eileen, I can't imagine it being that cold! Mom just talked to Aunt Alice today, and was telling me about your weather. I'm glad you like it...but then you have such nice, knitted sweaters to wear, keeping you warm! :)

It's been bitter here too. Fingers so cold I can hardly type. I must knit some fingerless gloves. Stay warm.

Your quilt squares and the sweater are so cute.
