Knitted FO's: a new sweater (the Nevis Cardigan), and a Christmas gift

I finished a sweater that I've been working on for a looooong time: the Nevis Cardigan, by Stefanie Japel:
I used Madelinetosh Lace in Spectrum (a gift from my brother and sister-in-law) and I love how floaty and airy the result is. It's the perfect sweater for fall: light-but-warm. And it's long and colorful and full of the jewel-tones I love. If you can forgive my very tired and makeup-less face, here's a full body shot of the sweater, graciously taken by my nine-year-old:
On top of that, I finished a few smaller things: the doll dresses I talked about in this post, and to go along with it, a sweater for my son's favorite teddy bear (can't leave the boys out of our crafting plans, right?):
I'm excited about giving the kids these little labors of love at Christmastime!

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell
