Two weeks ago I'd finished the second sweater of "Always." The first one was very nice, BUT I was stupid enough to felt it by putting it into the dryer. I was so bummed that I determined to redeem myself by making another one. This time I made it slightly roomier and shortened the neck of the motif (Cody did not have long neck) and changed the light color on the motif from very light to slightly darker. I'm so glad I did the second one. I love it! It's nice and cuddly just like Cody.
The 14 repeats of motif around the yoke symbolized the 14 years that Cody lived. I purposedly made the motifs simple just him and my hearts.

On his 6 month anniversary (10/11) since he passed away
I wore the sweater and went for a walk to his look out rock with Paul.
We brought his collar with us.

Currently I'm working on a two-color stranded cardigan. It's my own pattern and I designed the motif. I had the plaster carvings I saw in Morocco in mind when I designed the motif. I'm using Elann Sock It to Me 4 ply, colors are Mineral Blue and Chestnut. The needles size is 2. The cardigan is being knitted in round. It has been at least a decade since I did steek. I'm a bit nervous just thinking about cutting the steek. We'll see.


  1. "Always" is so beautiful! I'd love to knit one of my own - do you sell the pattern, or do you plan to? Thanks for sharing it - it's a lovely work of art and a beautiful tribute!
