Addy Likes Her Cardi and Grandma's New Kitchen!

As you can see from the photo of my newest granddaughter, Addison Ryan, she like the new cardi I made for her.  I went to Madison for 8 days to help with her care while my son was on an extended business trip.  Besides helping with the nighttime feedings so that momma could get a few longer stretches of sleep, I got to play with her during the day and get a few hours of knitting in here and there.  This is called Baby Cardigan by Plymouth Yarn Design Studio.  I made it out of two skeins of KnitCol Trends, a washable wool, using  3 and 6 needles.  Went together quite quickly.  The other sweater I made her is quite a bit bigger, so I was pleased to see that this one could get used right away.  And it did!  The new family was at the cabin this weekend for the holidays and it was a bit chilly.  Luckily I had just washed and dried the sweater and had it at the ready.  Yay!  I got home the middle of last week to the almost-finished new kitchen!  We had two days to get the appliances in, the cupboards filled, before the family started to arrive.  The new kitchen and appliances worked out great, although the microwave is a bit advanced for me without some further study.  Seems like it is a regular convection oven, a speed-cook oven, a microwave, and a toaster/warmer.  Hmmm.  Not just for heating soup anymore!  You can see a part of it above.  I need to take some better shots.  I also  need to introduce myself to my studio again!  Once I catch up on my sleep, we will again be good friends.  Jerilynn
