Baby Sweater

This is my old standby baby sweater. It is a Plymouth pattern for their Encore yarn. I must have made over 10 of them over the years. It is a quick easy knit for me and occasionally, I make a little hat to match depending if I have any yarn left. This one is for a girl at work who is having a little boy.

One of the nearby yarn shops closed this week on Saturday after 21 years. I went twice since I knew they were closing but also looking through my checkbook today, I saw that I had been a few more times in the past two years. They always had a great Super Bowl weekend sale that I always went to. They will be missed in their area. I bought a ton of patterns and notions the first time I went and this weekend, it was mostly yarn to make projects that I have had picked out and just needed the yarn. Very strange, when there is just not the right yarn in the large stash but there wasn't, so shopping I went. I have found some really nice yars that I had never noticed before so it has been a fun experience seeing these yarns and bringing them home to play with.

The sweater is cute! My closest LYS is an hour's drive away, and I'd be devastated if it closed.
