Birthday Fun and Entrechat


We had two birthdays to celebrate this week. Gracie turned 15 and Miss Karsyn turned 7. And, Alex lost his first front tooth. Too quickly... time flies.

Karsyn is so fun. She gets the most excited of any of our grandchildren (maybe anyone I've ever seen) over a gift... and is always so appreciative.


I would highly recommend this little pattern:  Entrechat by Lisa Chemery.  Done here in Noro Taiyo colorway #60.


Not a seam one. And, a really pretty bit of stitching, too...


Karsyn had requested a black, short sweater a few months ago... and I knit it in black per her request... the first time. Then, could not resist a bright spring one when our LYS got in a new Noro colorway.  ;)


The black does show the stitch design a bit better... and it WAS her favorite. But, I SURE enjoyed the bright Noro.  hee hee ;)

THE SUN IS SHINING!! I'm off to enjoy it!!  Hope you are, too!

I'd get excited over that beautiful garment too! She is a cutie! What I'm not excited over is the mini blizzard occurring outside my window this morning!!

Best,

I love it in both colors..
I like a child who shows her joy:)
I like an adult who shows her joy also.
Noah lost his first tooth this week also..so has been smiling to make it evident..and it is a bottom one so you can imagine the protrusion.
Pretty pretty girl w/ a pretty pretty name.

Lots of celebrations around your way! I love the little sweaters, especially the black one, very elegant. Have a wonderful evening x

That is a cute pattern and wonderful detail. I'm sure she preferred the black because she loves detail, right? The spring one is just eye-catching! Our grands do remind us how quickly time is flying as they milestone (one of those noun-verbs) so quickly.

What a darling sweater!! Now I have to control myself so that I don't pick up the needles before my basket is done. So much to do and now I am thinking of all the time I waste having to go to sleep at night. tee hee

Kerin said...

Well it looks like a wonderful birthday month for you all :)
Darling sweaters!!
It's wonderful that your little Grand is so happy, and thankful for your gift... a thankful heart for sure.

How fun to spoil your grand daughter with her request and with a surprise sweater.
Yes, all grandchildren grow up way to fast!

Amy at love made my home said...

Both tops are lovely!! Sounds as though you have been having lots of happy times! xx

Laurie said...

Tanna, you're very talented. Both sweaters are gorgeous, but I have to say....not half as gorgeous as Karsyn. Hope you enjoyed your sunshine. We had rain today.

Isn't she adorable? It will be so joyful to make new things for her, so appreciative. Both sweaters are beautiful, you did them so well.

Oh Tanna ~ those sweaters are darling. But what stopped me cold in my tracks was the adorable braiding of your little sweetie. Did you do that?

Betsy Brock said...

Golly, does that Karsyn look like you!

Judy S. said...

That is absolutely adorable and so is the recipient! Thanks for the link. What size did you make?

Nonna Rose said...

Your granddaughter is absolutely beautiful! I love the pattern too. Miss A will be 7 soon and although she is not a girly girl, I think she might actually like this sweater to wear to church. I think it will be my next project!

Tanya Breese said...

oh she is precious and i love the sweaters! happy birthday to the girls and wow, losing the first tooth, exciting stuff!!

Sandy said...

Karsyn, love her name and those braids. She is a true beauty, as are those sweaters. My, my. You astound me, Tanna. Such talent in one person.
Enjoy spring!

Stitchy Mc Floss said...

Aww she is adorable! Love what you made her. So very pretty. It's always nice to make something for a loved one and then know they appreciate all the hard work and love you put into it. I bet she becomes a knitter/crocheter when she gets older!
Blessings always sweet friend.

Tanna,

Lovely sweaters!

Catherine Holman said...

I can see why she loved it! She knows it's knitted with love.

Pammy Sue said...

Isn't Karsyn a beautiful little girl! I see you in her around the eyes maybe...something. I LOVE the sweater in both colors. How can you not love something in Noro (except when you're knitting or crochet with it - ha!). It's totally worth the aggravation. Beautiful job of knitting on both of them. I so enjoy seeing your beautiful knitting.

karen said...

beautiful sweater!! I love her smile and how happy she is in the photo :)

Lynne said...

Such a nice and talented granny . . .
I liked them both . . . (but the colors felt happy!)

Mereknits said...

Little ones do grow up so fast, they lose their first tooth and soon are off to prom. Love the sweaters you made, i especially love the colorful Noro one.
Hugs to you,
Meredith

Dear Tanna, The joy can be heard in your writing. How beautiful to celebrate these birthdays and enjoy each day.
The sweaters are very pretty and I am sure the girls loved them.

Ohhhh she's so beautiful-- I love her pretty smile! That's the absolute cutest little sweater-- Noro was the perfect choice for this pattern. The black shows off the pretty stitches so we'll also. Your babes are so lucky to have you make such lovely things for them:)
