a little cabled sweater. 12month size

A friend saw my knitting and inquired about me knitting for her. Sure fire way to get me to knit for you, have a little girl! Took us awhile to pick the pattern. Then we went yarn shopping. This little sweater was fun to knit tho. A little challenging but that's part of the fun.

Peyton's pigtail hat.
isn't she adorable? Like I said surefire way to get me to knit for you. Have a little girl! They are just so much fun to knit for. I wanted to make this hat for a very long time. One of my neighbors has the cutest little girl that always has her hair in pigtails. I must have asked her mom if I could make the hat a dozen times. Then finally I just knit it. It was a HUGE hit. The mom then quickly picked up knitting and knit both her girls matching pigtails hats. :) YAY!
