This is the sweater I started knitting in the car on the way to Canada. I listened to the audio books and did most of it while watching the boats. On the way home I was knitting the second sleeve. I decided to trim it with buttons, so went to Joann Fabrics to find some I could use. You can't tell very well, but they are in the basket weave rows I put in.

I put Zoe's name on but the color blends in, so you can't see it well on a picture.

This is the first sweater I knit for her. This one will have to wait until she grows some. I will just pack it away for now. She will get the top one when we finally go to Myrtle Beach and I see her.

Hi Nancy,

I love the sweaters you have stitched for Zoe especially the one with the buttons such a unusual thing to do. Love your snowman patterns you will have fun stitching them, wonder how you will finished them, individually to hang or a picture/pillow, I will wait for the surprise. Warm hugs, Hazel

She will LOVE it Gramma! :o) This reminds me of one you made for her when she MUCH smaller! I'm sure this winter she will get lots of use out of it. Love you & can't wait to see you!

Zoe is a lucky girl! I love the first one very, very much! And how nice that her name is on it as well.

Hugs, Carolien

Zoe Pickle will love her new sweater. I like the first one too and now she will just have to become a big girl so she can get that one too. :) How did you listen to the talking books up in Canada?

Love and hugs ~

Hi Nancy,

Love the sweaters!
It brings back memories of my grandmother knitting me sweaters.
And it is the big hit in fashion this season.
Maybe I have to start knitting again, but I already have a lot of UFO's ans WIP's to finish.
I was working on a scarf, I think i can finish that before winter.
Big Hug

You've been very busy Nancy! Both of these sweaters are just lovely.
What a nice touch to add the buttons - so pretty.
