Parties and matching sweaters

Today, Mazie and Olive have two birthday parties to go to.  One is for my niece, Violet, and the other is a sleepover with our next-door neighbor.  They are so excited.  

Me, I'm knitting.

I don't know if you remember this baby pattern for the Whirligig Shrug:


I sized up the pattern to add child sizes (up to a 10) and am now working on an adult version in a gorgeous gray Lorna's Laces yarn.

Do your daughters want to dress like you? Or for you to dress like THEM?  Mine do! They're 5 and 7, and they are still just so excited when we notice that we're all wearing stripes, say, or all wearing something pink.  So they will LOVE it when we all have a similar sweater to wear. I wish I was finished knitting today, so that we could all wear them to our parties!

Expect the patterns to be ready around the first of the year!
