LB's sweater

One of the reasons I started a personal blog (as opposed to continuing to use the video blog as a platform for personal musings) was to show off some of my craft projects. I started this blog almost 2 months ago and have yet to post about some project, lol. But today I finally got my act together and even have a photo.

This is a little sweater I crocheted for LB last spring:

The blue yarn came from my grandmother's closet (it's like shopping for yarn, but it's all free!!!) There wasn't quite enough of it, so I had to use the white. I think I would have preferred to make the whole thing striped and give it a hood, rather than a collar. It's actually my first, real garment. Up to this point I'd only crocheted things like scarves, mittens, hats, etc. You can't see the seams, but they're terrible. I used white yarn and it shows something awful. Oh well. it's cute and soft.
