Black Beauty

Every night (and sometimes during the day) Chloe listens to a book on CD version of Black Beauty by Anna Sewell. She absolutely loves it. I practically have it memorized.




Yarn: Paton's Chunky Tweed in color "Sea Ice", 4 balls; random acrylic leftovers of black and white

Needles: size 10

Pattern: None! I designed it, with Chloe's help, and all the little things she likes like ruffles and an intarsia picture of Black Beauty. It's not perfect, but I'm satisfied with the result for the most part. This was my first intarsia (picture knitting) project. I learned plenty.

This is her Christmas sweater. Not a surprise at all, but I wanted it to be something she'd like wearing so I let her help with picking out the style and yarn and such. It's going into the Christmas closet now.
