Two Tiny Sweaters: I'm Knitting Again!

I've been so busy with various projects that I neglected my knitting. However, since knitting is so calming for me I've been making an effort to fit it in at least a couple times a week (usually when we're driving to town or to a doctor's appointment). I didn't use a pattern for either of my most recent projects I just estimated sizes and lengths. Unfortunately I estimated a little too small with Sadie's summer sweater and it ended up being just a tiny bit too small across the shoulders (I guess Maggie will be the first one to wear it!).

It's a really simple pattern for the stitches, it just alternates knit stitches and purl stitches on each line and then begins with the opposite stitch above it.

I had one ball of this cotton yarn from Walmart (I love that there is a ball of 100% cotton yarn for $1.20-something) and I decided to make Sadie's doll a sweater for it. Sadie loves pretending that Lucy is her baby and carries her around and feeds her and burps her. The sweater is going to be a birthday present next month.

And the colors are just perfect for a baby doll sweater!
