Ok, here's my attempt

My first crocheted sweater. It's Kelly's Sweater, by Kelly Kearney. It was a nice pattern for a beginner and very quick too.

Very cute and the color is very pretty, mashaAllah. You are knitting very nice things for your littlest one.
P.S. I really admire that you are homeschooling your kids,mashaAllah.

JazakILLAH Khair. Starting to feel guilty for the other kids now, lol. I am just trying to use up odds and ends before getting yarn for their projects.

Thanks - homeschooling is fun!

take care,

Wa 'alaikum as salaam wa RahmatuLLAHI wa Barakatuh,

JazakILLAH Khair, you're right, I love to see them wearing it. Besides, it's cheaper to make than buy from the store these days. I saw sweaters for toddlers in the $30 and up range before - that seems a bit steep for me.

take care,
