Summer knitting

 Stan and I drove to and around Alaska this Summer. I knit most of this sweater as we drove.

Close up of the yoke detail.  This is from a very old pattern I have.  I do enjoy making it. The directions include sizes from infant to adult. I used Malabringo Sock weight yarn for this project.  It is machine washable and dryable.  I, however, would recommend hand washing and laying flat to dry.

I have made this dress before.  A favorite pattern.  Quick to make as it is made from worsted weight yarn. This yarn is hand washable.  Lay flat to dry.

Close up of the yoke and sweet buttons I found for the dress.

A picture I received

This week of my dear friend Pastor Mwenebolongo's son Memba on the back row left. Beside him is his wife Eliza and in front, in the blue striped blouse their daughter Jeanine.  Memba will be ordained into the ministry soon.  He  is currently leading a Swahili Church here in the U.S. One time he told me his most prized possession is the Bible his dear father gave him as he left Africa for the U.S. Some day, I will meet this family:)
