I got this really cute polka dot fleece at JoAnn's on sale the day after Thanksgiving. I made the holes with the skip-stitch rotary blade, then put the crocheted edge on it. This one is for the St. Ann Sewing Seams of Faith group. I got enough fleece to make another one for a Christmas gift.

This is the sweater I knitted for Gybsen for Christmas. I used Cotton Ease yarn and I got the pattern from here

I chose Cotton Ease yarn because I didn't want it to be too hot. I did have to use a smaller needle size, probably because of the yarn I was using. I added a bit to the sleeves. After I sewed the top seams together I knitted across the ends of the sleeves for 12 rows then I switched colors and put a ribbed cuff the same number of rows as the ribbed part on the bottom. Then sewed up the sides and arms and Voila!
