Car Coat and Beret

It's taken me a while to finish this one.  I ran out of yarn for the beret and had to order more.  And I had button problems.  I bought 4 of 2 different kinds to see which would work best.  But I needed 6.  And later going back to the store, they didn't have any more.  But they were going to order and would let me know when they got them in.  But I never heard back from them. 

 On a trip to Joanne's I looked and found these.  It took a couple of months to get this all done.

On this very, nice, warm day Karen came by with her mom and sister.  Lightbulb went off in my head.  Maybe she fits the sweater and I can get pics.  She fit it nicely. She didn't even mind that it was pretty warm out.

This sweater is made from Shine Sport which is a cotton/modul beech fiber  blend yarn.  I don't know what that means.  It is a very soft yarn, but has a little of a plasticy feel to it that I don't like.  I wanted to give it a try, but I think I'll stick to more other cotton for most my cotton knitting.  I do like cotton for children because of the easy care and wear.

She's looking at the chickens in this one and doesn't want to get too close.
So that you know.  Sometimes the easiest way to get your child in my pics is just to stop by.
