A Sweater for Mr. E

I finished Mr. E's Red Sox sweater on Tuesday. Of course I had to try it on him right away. I made it 12-month size, but it fits him now. I think my gauge was off. Anyway, it was fun to make and he will be able to wear it for awhile.

He wasn't sure what to think of it. We couldn't get him to smile while wearing it.
Here's the rear view. Don't you love the star on his tush?
Now I plan to focus on my stitching projects. I'm three blocks behind on Gail Pan's A Christmas Wish, I have two monthly projects from Under The Mulberry Tree's Stitchery of the Month program, a Giggle Club project or two, and I decided to work on the Long and Short Stitch Shading tutorial from Needle'n'Thread. Not to mention I'm expecting delivery of projects from Giggle Club and Under The Mulberry. This morning I printed out all the directions I needed. I'm hoping to get all the designs traced over the next few days. I'm out of handwork projects at the moment and I'm having withdrawals!

Happy Stitching!
Sweet P

Oh good for you doing the long and short stitch from Mary Corbet! Isn't she something else?

Your sweater turned out great, and what a cutie wearing it! Love that it has a hood too.

Good job!

Very cute!! Of course the Red Sox always can use another fan, no matter what the age.

OH Paula! Mr. E. is so adorable in his sweater. Those grandbabies are so fun! My little Noah has now outgrown the sweater I made him last year so it's time to get another one on the needles.
I'm stitching the Christmas Wish blocks also and was 3 behind until last night. Now just 2. I plan to be caught up by the end of the weekend but the best laid plans tend to go astray!

A star from top to bottom and you did a great job on the sweater.
