Christmas, Handmade Gifts, Sweaters

Baby Flax

I feel like I have been knitting and crocheting a lot the last few weeks but since most of the items that I have worked on have been big projects it feels like I have made little to no progress. On top of that I have been battling a cold/sinus infection for close to a month. I’ve been hot, feverish, dehydrated and congested which hasn’t helped one bit with the migraines that I frequently suffer. If that wasn’t bad enough my son has been down with the same crud and has missed a week of school. Yay for sick kids and extra homework at night…

I did managed to pick this cute baby sweater up last night. All it needed was the sleeves and they knit up really fast. I knit it as a Christmas gift for my cousin’s baby girl.
