Peasy Sweater

It's been a really busy week.  Historic Tyler on Tour planning is in full swing.  The usual busy work of bill paying, bookkeeping, etc.  We are looking at another Old Girl (historic multiplex), which involves lots of research and phone calls.  I've enjoyed a couple of Skype visits with Little Man.  And, we just got back from a day trip into Dallas to visit with Evan's family.  Lunch at Houston's, always a treat!  Plus an excursion to Costco's!!  We enjoyed the best coffee cake for dinner!  I know it wasn't a healthy dinner... but it was soooooo good.  Hope you have all been enjoying a nice weekend, too.  I continue to be grateful for all the sweet and encouraging comments on the watercolor painting.  You are all too kind.



Finished the Peasy sweater this week.  Back into my familiar medium.


Choosing buttons after blocking.  Went with the shell ones.  I never could get a photo with good color on this yarn.  Very frustrating!


Now, I've started on the fun colors... with a small detour along the way.  I think Little Man needs a stocking cap to wear when he goes to cut his Christmas Tree.  =)  Gotta get busy!!

beautiful sweater....

Christine said...

Another "Old Girl"? That is exciting. You and your husband are making the world a little better, house by house.

Those yarn colors will be fun to play with, yummy.

Who is that fashion model?

Susan said...

You'll look like a sweet Texas lady in a very pretty sweater. Still wishing I could spend a day or two knitting with you.

Betsy said...

The sweater is lovely! I wish you lived close by...I'd come for some knitting leassons! :)

Your little trip sounds so fun! Sometimes you just have to enjoy a yummy, unhealthy dinner...and dessert! :)

Have a good week....be careful. You driving?

southerninspiration said...

The sweater is almost as lovely as you are!!! And the watercolor is so pretty, too!
I love reading about your little man. My first g'baby was born 10/12 and I cannot wait to be able to have such interactions with her! :D

Gee Tanna, you're so young lookin' and pretty! I don't know if I left a comment on your post about your watercolor, but I was absolutely blown away by your talent!
Love the sweater, and I know little boys love hats!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Your "model" looks so good in the sweater. I like the color and the pattern on the front! Great job...you have patience. i prefer crocheting these days since I lose my place often and can get back to it much easier than in knitting! Wish I could do more knitting though.

The sweater is beautiful. I love the neckline and the open work. You chose the perfect model to show it off!

Yes, the pumpkin balls do taste like spiced apples/peaches but with a different texture!

Yes, Little Man does need a stocking cap for thus blustery valley days.

Best,
Bonnie

Tara said...

Beautiful! You and the sweater. Sounds like you have been a busy lady. Lil Man will be so cute in his hat, I am sure of it.
Have a blessed Thanksgiving.
Hugs,
Tara

That is one gorgeous sweater...I can't believe you can make something so pretty as that! Have a great Thanksgiving :D

Amanda said...

Oooo, I am loving the peasy. I love the design and the color. Hope I get to see it in person. ;-)

You know LM does indeed need a new hat for the tree hunt! We'll need to let him admire himself in the mirror in hopes that will convince him to keep it on for long periods of time. =)

Carol............. said...

Whooaaa...great look all around and that sweater is absolutely "IN"!

Sometimes treats are a good thing for the soul.

Jill said...

Oh Tanna you look beautiful in that sweater. That color is so rich and WARM. You are one jazzy (and talented) lady!

I trust you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
