Spoiled...

I'll talk to you in the comments. :)

I guess I am spoiled. I can usually post and image with text very quickly at home. Here in the Nothwoods, things move very slowly. I wanted to show you the other baby sweater in bue that I am knitting. It is the same pattern, as the last, just differnt washable acrylic yarn. I'm afraid it will look like an ordinary storebought sweater. I will find a way to embellish it. Perhaps some ribbong for the ties instead of crocheting some ties. Hmmmm, maybe a crocheted something or other over the stockinette.

Sweaters that look machine knit do not appeal to me. I knit because I want that unique look that says, handknit. If I look through patterns and think, "I can buy that at Kohls, Penneys, Gap or Carson's" I don't want that pattern. It has to pass the mass produced test.

What do you look for in your knitting?

Utility and classic design usually. Except for socks. With socks I'll try almost anything.
