Two birds with one stone

I'm one of those moms who like matching outfits...not for the kids, mind you, but for me and my daughter...bwahaha!

This is the latest thing I've finished knitting...a sweater to match the jumper I made for my daughter awhile back.

sweater I knitted using Mary E. Jacob's Love Birds pattern, worn with BDG jeans and Vans slip ons

Here's my daughter wearing the jumper I made her using the Love Birds Jumper pattern by Arenda Holladay, who is also my teacher in one of the knitting courses I'm taking. She's awesome.

In progress:

If you knit, I highly recommend joining The Knitting Guild Association. For a small yearly fee (currently $25US), you get access to Cast On Magazine (where these patterns are from), and be able to enrol in courses & certifications (for a reasonable price) such as the Master Hand Knitter program (am slowly plugging along on the last level, you guys), and Swatch to Sweater (learning to design a knitted sweater, which I'm also currently taking). It's such a great non-profit organization!

I am a member but am not sponsored or anything. Just really love knitting and this group. TKGA has really helped me become a better knitter:)


Amazing sweeather my dear

I absolutely adore when you and your daughter match. This is a pretty lovely jumper. And can I just say this: when did your daughter get so tall? She's almost at your shoulders now. Crazy!

Hi dear, this is so beautiful. It is a great talent that you have. you both look beautiful
Oh these came out GREAT!! I don't knit but I learned a lot about the knitting world when I use to work at Soho Publishing. And I met some well known knitters like Nicky Epstein and Vickie Howell. I was even on a photo shoot with Vickie Howell. It really opened my eyes to how much knitting is having a resurgence.
