Red, White, and Aqua Sweater

I  just posted a new sweater at and in my Etsy shop.  I think of this sweater as patriotic with a twist--red, white, and aqua.  Maybe I should have saved it for the Fourth of July?

I started knitting this sweater a few months ago and worked up the front on a flight to Colorado at the end of February.  (I'm not usually such a slow knitter, but I had to put it aside to handle a number of custom orders and have just now been able to get back to it.)

One of the flight attendants, a lovely woman named Shirley, told me how much she liked the colors, and we got to talking about my sweater business.  I gave her my card, and we have since worked on several custom sweaters together, including a cardigan version of this sweater, which she is giving as a shower gift to a mom-to-be due on Flag Day.  I think it's an absolutely adorable gift idea!  Anyway, I think that story just exemplifies how great customers find us in interesting ways.  (Hi Shirley!)

Happy Monday everyone!  Hope you have a great week!
