Doing as I'm told














The library got Kate Jacob's newest book "Knit the Season" in and I scurried to get as I enjoyed reading "The Friday Night Knitting Club". It inspired me so I pulled out some extra bits of yarn and did as the book suggested - I Knit the Season. Here are 5 little sweaters I whipped up while reading the book. The blue one isn't seamed and the red one isn't quite done.














Here they are looking a little bit closer to their true colors. I think this year I'm going to take all my mini-sweaters and put them on the Christmas wreath on the front door. It will be festive, unusual and will certainly tell all visitors that a knitter lives in the house!

As for the book...can't say I loved it. It was predictable and a bit trite. I think she's played the theme out and needs to move on. There are a few patterns and recipes in the back of the book.

Your little sweaters will look great on a wreath!

Too, too cute! I can't wait to see the wreath. I don't think I'm going to get around to knitting a wreath this year. Bummer. I'll have to live vicariously through you and yours.

The wreath idea is great! The sweaters I've made will be going to my nieces and nephews but maybe I can remember that idea for next year.

I agree with your book review. The first one was my favorite.
