White Pullover Sweater


 Hello all, it's the long lost blogger again, finally making her appearance. So sorry for such a long absence but you know how it is sometimes, when "life" just takes over and there is no time for the fun stuff. But.....I have to say, that the clouds have parted and I am in full swing again~making prettieee things and doing what I love the most....crochet!

I had a request from my oldest, that she would love to have a white pullover sweater to wear to school. She claims that the classrooms are freezing and wished to have something "warm" to keep her from shivering all day sooo~ the sweet mom as I am, this is what I whipped up for her over the weekend. Hopefully this will do the trick






I  L O V E how it turned out. From the top collar all the way down to the extra long sleeves. ( I say extra long sleeves cause they cover most of her hands....which she did not mind)  and the pattern stitch that I came up with throughout the body which I love to call the "Sweater Stitch" Maybe there is a stitch out there that is close to this one but that is what I am calling the stitch in this sweater.



 I do think as fall is coming closer and closer here in the neighborhood, I think a gray , cream  or a pretty brown might be made......just for the fun of it!


Speaking of fun......I even had my hand at this little sweater....it's crochet and knit!
Tell you all about it soon!


p. s.  Did you notice something different?  Yes, I know, The name changed here. I think it suits me better, don't you think?  Hope you all don't mind..... again.

  1. Welcome back! I was just wondering where you may have disappeared to. Your sweater is beautiful. Did you make up the pattern yourself? The baby sweater is darling too. I'm glad to see you again Shari.

  6. Hey Girlfriend! I am so happy to hear some noise from your corner! :D I've just started back to blogging as well. I have gone back to paper arts and am on two design teams so you will get to see lots of cool paper projects because we are required to make a certain amount of projects per month. I'll explain more about design teams in case you don't know what they are but in a PM. I am loving that white sweater!!! First off white is one of my best colors to wear secondly I just love the softness and calmness that white conveys! Hope you are all well; that you had a great summer and are enjoying this beautiful fall.
    Talk soon my sweet blogging friend
    Hugs,
    Beth P
    P.S. I changed the name of my blog as well, and went back to my blogger blog, lol - we truly are sisters! :D
