A wedding Request

A little over a week ago I got a "Etsy convo" from a girl who wanted a grey (yes, grey) sweater for her one & 1/2 yr old niece for a wedding. I thought grey???? Then she said the wedding was Oct. 24th. ..... Yikes!! Well, I made the sweater in the style she chose, and it is just toooo sweet.

The girl sent me a picture of the birdesmaid dresses which are also grey, and they are very simple, stunning, and chic.

Well, I knit myself crazy with this one. I really wanted to get it done with time to spare. First, I had to order the darn yarn..... who keeps grey yarn for babies on hand? Then, just as I got going on the sweater, I went to the dentist, had a little episode, and landed in the emergency room for a day. How frustrating, knowing that my knitting was sitting there at home in the basket by my chair, and I was in a hospital bed. Aarrrgh!

Well, I finished the sweater, and off it went today. In plenty of time.

Sometimes you just have to persevere, have faith in God, and keep plugging along.


  1. Very pretty sweater! I bet the little girl looked adorable!

  2. Very cute! And amen to your last line. :) I'm glad you were able to finish it! You should request that she send a picture of the little girl's wedding picture with the jacket on so you can use it for an updated blog post and advertising on your shop. :)I know I'd love to see how gray looks at a wedding! :) Thanks for sharing!

  3. Very adorable! The little ribbon is a nice touch.
