Sweater done, and time for a break

I saved the pattern for this sweater from a magazine in the 80s. My sons were already too big for it, but I knew I would want to make it someday. This is a toddler size 2 and will be for a baby shower that I am attending in a few weeks. Recent baby showers have given the mommies so many infant and 6 month size clothes, I thought I aim ahead a bit.
I've been under the weather, almost literally, with sinus woes worsened by the humidity. Nothing serious, just aggravating because the headaches prevent me from doing some things that I enjoy and sometimes things that need doing...like washing floors.

The son of dear friends is being married this weekend. The groom and his bride are wonderful young adults and we are excited for them. We are honored and happy to be involved in so many of the pre-wedding events. Having fallen behind in housework and knowing we will be busy from Thursday on through the weekend, I am announcing a blog break now. I miss reading blogs even when I don't have much to say on my own, but I know what happens when I sit at the computer with my coffee in the morning. Suddenly it isn't morning any more!

See you next week, hopefully recharged mentally and with something lovely to post.

The sweater is adorable and the new mommy will be so happy that she has something for baby to wear next spring!

I hope you are feeling better soon. The pollen and humidity really do a number on me, too. Ger well.

Will miss you!

How delighted that mom-to-be will be when she opens your gift!

I hope that you get to feeling better in time for your busy schedule.

The sweater is so cute! It will be the best gift, unless the family wins the lottery or such.

Get well quickly,

Knit the sweater is just too cute for words. I know what you mean about taking breaks. I take too many to try and recharge, but my battery seems to be at low constantly these days. The heat is getting to everyone and you just want to sit in front of the air and relax, but alas nothing gets done. I have some of the little boxes you collect and if you could repost all of them, I may have some to send to you. Hugs, Pat
