Yarn Along -Easter Sunday Sweater Goal




I'm on a mission...2 little girls, 2 little boys, and me, their mom, here in Alaska alone for our first big girls, no Pete.  I needed something to look forward to Easter week...not that Jesus sacrificing His life for us is not something to look forward to...but you know what I mean...

I want to knit both girls Ginny's Sunday sweater pattern.  I knit Priscilla one the first week Ginny released her pattern.  I loved knitting it and Priscilla still LOVES wearing it.  I got the itch last week to stuff the Easter baskets with hand made goodies.  I thought I would create reasonable goals..2 Sunday Sweaters, 2 bird nests filled with knit eggs for the boys...  We will see.

I have been reading anything I can get my hands on recently...I LOVED My Sisters The Saints.  I'm reading Shirt of Flame, and Consoling the Heart of Jesus (slowly).  I also went to the coffee shop yesterday with Emily's kindle and read Jennifer Fulwiler's e-book Family First Creative .  It was SO good.  I can't wait to read her book Something Other Than God.

I actually hate to admit that I enjoyed reading on Emily's kindle.  What does that mean??  Having 24 hr. access to books may not be the best thing for my budget....



  1. Lisa, I have been loving my kindle for several years now....I can't imagine being without it. Michael and I are really looking forward to spending time with Emily and Molls after Easter. I can't imagine a more fun filled time!
    Hugs, Mom

  2. Love your reads, AND your yarn. Is it precious? You always knit with such good stuff!

  3. I love this pattern--love, love, love it! If I have a little girl someday, it's going to be one of the fist ones I make.

  4. Oh the color is lovely! Perfect for Easter!

  5. Beautiful! I wish I could knit fast, a sweater would take me forever and then I'd mess up, frog it, and never finish it despite my slow knitting. Oh how I miss my knitting friends in VA, they would help me over those bumps!
    I cannot wait to see the results of your knitting, it truly is gorgeous!
