The black buttons my mom used on the sweater are antique and I love the way it looks.
On the inside of the sweater near the neck my mom sewed in this cute label.
You can see here the label inside the sweater near the top of the neck and the pretty buttons.
Looking at the sweater you can see the different effects that the yarn has made. The yarn has made a stripe effect with many multi colors. I love that this sweater will go with anything I wear, either a top underneath the sweater or with any colored pants or jeans.
My mom gave me this sweater in November and I love wearing it. I have already gotten a lot of use out of wearing it due to the very cold weather we are having right now. Thanks so much mom for making this beautiful sweater for me, I just love it.
I think that this is how I became inspired to learn how to knit and crochet from my moms love of knitting. My mom learned to knit when she was only 11 years old by an aunt. Since then my mom has made so many wonderful creations such as socks, scarves, and sweaters. My mom also made for me a beautiful knitted felted handbag and you can see that here. I think that my mom is really talented and creative and I just love that.
My mom and aunt Mary taught me how to knit one summer in 2009 and I also took a class at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio in New York City and you can see the link here. The Lion Brand Yarn Studio gives lessons in knitting and crocheting and the classes are small and you get the one on one attention that is so vital in learning a craft. The classes are also very affordable. If you live in the New York City area I would definitely suggest taking a class there if you are interested.
I hope I may have inspired you in some way to take a class in knitting or crocheting if you want to learn a new craft. It's so much fun once you learn either one.
Have a nice weekend everyone and see you on Monday for my Makeup Monday Series.
