Not that it would keep her very warm at the moment. It's a little sparse. For those regular, observant readers, yes! This is the same yarn and pattern I used for the new baby's cardigan. These two sisters will be "matchy matchy". I love that and so does their Mum (picklesticks) so it's all good! Crocheting this matchy matchy cardigan has made me think about my Mum and being a new Mum myself. Appropriate, because it's Mother's day this weekend.
An eon or two ago my Mum made matchy matchy outfits for me and picklesticks, and then for my oldest girls and then for the middle girls. It seems so very long ago now! My sister, brother and I grew up with Mum making most of our clothes. I loved it because I loved the clothes she made for me and also because I loved to sit and watch her create. I spent hours watching her sew. I remember the rooms her sewing desk was in with fondness. I also remember watching her knit for us. Mum's knitting seemed to herald winter for me. I love winter. (You can keep that disgusting HOT weather! I love the cooler months.) Just the word winter conjures up visions of a gas heater, rain on the windows, and my Mum knitting. I think that my Mother definitely had an effect on my own creating. However, if you didn't spend hours watching your Mum sew whilst growing up it doesn't mean you won't be able to sew! (Just watching doesn't do it. You have to practice, practice, practise!) I watched my Mum knit and I am not a knitter!
Which brings me back to the cardigan. I am a crocheter and I am really enjoying this pattern. It's from this cute as book which I picked up at Lincraft. Anyway, back to the making!
