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.
