Five Fruits the Second

After way too long a period of time, I finally finished the second Five Fruits sweater. Don't ask me when it was started! Probably a year ago, but it was finished on March 3. Details here on Ravelry. It is intended for nephew, but by now it'll probably be too small. If so I will pick out a different pattern for him. I used Patons Astra in navy, hot blue, hot green, cardinal, deep orange, and school bus yellow, 4.5mm needles. Way too many ends to weave in!

I also went through the stash and found some odds and ends to make some baby hats. I have one finished so far, it's the cat-eared baby hat. I have another one on the go, and I'm at the decreases. This is a fun, cute knit. This one is made with Bernat Jr Jacquards.

The kids brought home a couple of boxes of their toys from Nanny's the other day. This little guy has to be kept safe from teeth, if you know what I mean. He's 32 years old, I got him when I was five. I never got the Doughgirl, and I guess there were others in the "family", but I only remember the boy and the girl. A friend of mine had the girl, so we used to take them to school and play with them. I wonder what ever happened to hers. Mine isn't white any more, even though I remember taking him in the tub all the time. I am such a packrat. The kids have a lot of toys that were mine. (Click here for Doughboy fun.)

Happy knitting!

I had one of those! I wonder where it is now? Probably my own kids played with it at my mom's and who knows what happened to it!

Did you see my daughter will be on Judge Judy 3/16/09!

OMG, look at that Doughboy!!! He is so cute! It makes me think of his little giggle :-)

I love the fruit sweater, the colours are so bright and cheerful.

Oh no - I see my mom said the exact same thing. Scary.
