Mom and Daughter Tops

Well, not really.  We don’t even match or coordinate or anything.  But we don’t clash.  So there’s that. It’s kind of hard to see the details on the one I made for souricette 1.  It’s navy blue cotton/spandex jersey from

The Never Ending Home Stretch

It feels like I’m next to done.  I’ve knit two fronts, two sleeves, and a back.  All that needs to be done is sew everything up, pick up and knit the borders, and sew on a button or two.  Weaving

The Unblogged aka The Crappy Pictures Post
