Many thanks!

I just wanted to thank everyone for their emails telling me about when they'd first seen this pattern, or telling me who they were going to knit it for. It's been a lot of fun reading through them all. As I was cleaning up my files on the pictures last night...I got a case of the giggles. I couldn't stop laughing at this picture...it kept 'moving' around ... OK so it was quite late. And I was a bit tired. But ...don't those arms look like they're moving? Maybe I just need my eyes checked.
Then I thought it reminded me of making snow angels when we were little.


This is their daytime shot - we are, after all, in Southern California. Oh wait, I forgot their sunglasses. My mistake.

But then I saw this and thought that this was their nighttime lounging around shot.
Please understand, middle daughter and I are laughing while we're watching Victoria Beckham's TV show..Coming to America. She's pretty funny! As someone who moved here from the Midwest, I can relate to her impressions living in LA. DMV, Earthquakes. Ya, my first one, I was ready to pack it in and get outta here...fast!
And I'm procrastinating from the blankets. Really procrastinating. Don't tell my daughter.
Thanks again, for the fun and very positive emails and comments about this sweater pattern. I've wanted for quite some time now to be able to share it with everyone. This was much more fun than I had expected!

Hi: Thanks for the pattern, I have been hoping you were going to get approval to post, so now maybe more babies can get sweater sets when released from hospital. Now I have an extra question. What did you use for the little boy sweater that you have knitted before? And will you be able to post that?

Your sweaters are beautiful and I am getting ready to knit some of them. However, I have a problem with Row 9 where you have to increase with the Bar 1 stitch. My pattern doesn't look at all like yours in the photo. Mine just looks like a purl stitch. Can you clarify this stitch? I have already looked at your photo tutorials.

I'm not sure how much more to say about the Bar 1 increase. Have you looked at the pictures before and after the written directions? Possibly click on the pictures to enlarge them? Maybe that would help to explain them. Sorry, I don't know how else to explain the process other than the step by step directions with pictures I have already posted.

Hi and i have a problem with row 8. It says k3*inc 1,k1. Repeat from*to last 3 stitches k3. when i do this i come out with 88 sts not 68! Help what am i doing wrong?

Cathy said...

Which pattern are you reading? Row 8 for the Baby Jiffy Knit pattern should be: Row 8: K3, * K2tog, repeat from * across to last 4 sts, K4 (37 sts) so I'm confused which one you are looking at.
