Wrap 'em up and Kiss 'em Good Bye

With Mom's help I finished the cropped baby sweater and Baby Surprise gifts for my co worker's shower just as my ride was driving up. I enjoyed working on them, but am happy I'm done. One thing finished, 80 thousand more to go before summer begins.

She seemed to really like both sweaters.

My mother especially liked the cropped sweater. I did an I-cord trim and rolled cuffs instead of the ribbing the pattern called for.

The Baby Surprise was fun. I finished it last night, leaving seeming and buttons for today - both done for me by Mom as I rushed around.

Mom's blog Knitting with my Mother's Hands is up, as I said, and she made a new post. I think its so hard to learn something new when you're life is chaotic, and she's really pulling it off, so BRAVA!
