My No-Grownup-Sweaters Diet

March 29, 2007 at 2:34 am 3 comments

  I don’t knit grownup sweaters.  I still have one in progress for over a year.  The other one was a failure that will be frogged and re-knit into something for girly.  I don’t knit grownup sweaters for 2 main reasons: that much yarn is too expensive and it takes so long.  So, my new motivation for a diet is that I want to knit myself a sweater.  If I lose some weight (like 20 lbs at least), I could knit size S and M instead of L and XL.  That would save me time and money.

But…the kids are getting so big so fast!  Goozle is wearing a size 24 month!  Grandma C got it, but it’s fun because Grandma B goes to UW-Oshkosh! 


Girly is wearing size 3-6 months already.  The pink bunny is her favorite toy.  Both of them have practically outgrown their fancy pants.  I love Goozle’s jammies.  I think they make him look like Thing 1 and Thing 2. 

I’m on my 5th attempt at finishing the lacy thong.  That thing is a pain in the butt!  🙂  It’s a gift for my sister.  Hopefully, the 5th time’s a charm!

    What cute kiddies you have! I have yet to try another adult sweater – my attention span, I get distracted by all the other things I want to knit.

    Who needs to knit grownup sweaters when you have such adorable models like those two? I rarely wear sweaters myself anway so that is my excuse plus, I have two adorable models myself who wear my knitted goodies with pride so I’d rather knit for them. They look better in it any way 🙂
