Slump Day

Yep, that kind of says it all.

Slump Day for work, knitting, sewing, cleaning, you name it.

I want to knit EZ’s February baby sweater in a 24 month size.  I’ve never knit a top-down sweater before.  Do I just start the pattern and make the body bigger?  Seems like a no-brainer.  Is it?

And I need to have this finished by September 10.

Yesterday I stopped by the Big Box store and bought six balls of cotton in assorted colors for the Swiffer covers.  Quick, easy, portable project.  Maybe these will get me out of my slump.

Eyelet Sweater pattern

My own pattern

Eyelet Sweaters June 2010

I’ve made my first sweater pattern available for the Eyelet Sweater.  Pattern is listed on the sidebar.  So far I only have size 12-24 months and will try to get other sizes. 

This sweater is designed to go to the waist and has 3/4 or elbow length sleeves. 

***I have not have any test knitters try out this pattern.  Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.


I have many WIPs and really need to finish something before starting another project. The current WIP is one of two sweaters I need to finish by the end of June. I’m using elements from three patterns and pictures of two sweaters. As much as I prefer to follow patterns, I cannot find one that fits the bill. Summer weight. Eyelet. Toddler sized.

I like the edge and eyelet pattern from one sweater, the raglan sleeves from another, and the length of sleeves from a third.

Can I call this an original pattern?
