we went out for lunch,
and there were cupcakes and gifts.
The blue yarn is for a sweater that she has been asking for. I remeasured her again (I lost the first set of numbers, oops) and have a plan. I have been watching Amy Herzog's Craftsy class, Knit to Flatter, which is all about using your measurements to adjust your sweater pattern to get the perfect fit and style for you. I'm going to combine Anita's measurements and the sweater style that she likes with Amy's advice on fit and tips on style and knit up a birthday sweater. Having a finished sweater to deliver will be another great reason for a visit :)
and of course there was a little knitting going on during the visit :)
Happy Birthday Anita, love you lots!!
