i sewed the lining in this morning and here are the end results …

i learned something new …

last night i went to SNB at my LYS and I learned how to make the cute flower that goes on the shoulder of the sweater I am making for my friend’s dd … here is a picture:

it is just going to look so cute … the sweater (i posted wip pictures earlier) is a lavender … i think that yellow and lavender look wonderful together … there are going to be 3 of these flowers on the left shoulder … i just have to sew the sides of the sweater and add the flowers (of course) and it is done …

i am working on a hat to match (thank you penny for the pattern help) … so i will add 1 or 2 to the hat as well …
