Harebell number 3 is complete as of last night when the buttons were sewn on. Made with Berroco Summer Sesame in the color, Ocean. Size 7 needles to make the body and sleeves, size 6 for the ribbing. I used about 1,100 yards to make this and I love it as you already know since this is three in a row. I added one inch in length to the body and sleeves. I am 5' 10 after all, or at least I used to be in my prime. I am starting #4 today because as I have said now over and over this is the perfect cardigan pattern. It can be made any length and with any yarn, it has the perfect neckline, and is easy to make. I made a medium size and it fits perfectly.
A special sunny yarn surprise came in the mail this week from a very, very dear blogging friend. Little Buddy also got a book about race cars. He immediately started to read it even though we were half way through another book. Lots of reading is in store for the summer to keep his brain active. Thank you my dear friend for the surprises for both of us.
A surprise early birthday treat occurred yesterday after I picked up Little Buddy from camp. We drove to my friend Lynda's for cupcakes, presents and time to play with Susan who was down visiting from North Carolina. Little Boy had so much fun. They even had a bounce house but I can't show you those photos because it was so wet inside it from all the rain Little Buddy had to go in there with just his underpants on. He thought it was a hoot! He rolled and rolled all over it with Susan who jumped and made him bounce. He can't stand in it, but crawling and rolling were just perfect.
This photo just made me laugh at him in the bounce house. Enjoy your weekend and Father's Day tomorrow if you are celebrating or remembering your Father. It can be a difficult day for many reasons.
Have a wonderful weekend my friends.
