My first sweater and Another Project

This is my first sweater and this is for Alexander Arnar my youngest boy,he will be 2 in a 2 months.This pattern names is Liam and you can find it on Ravelry and on the side whit designer.
I just love this pattern,it has 3 very cute sheep on the front and it is knit all in one piece that you just folder over and sew when you are done:)
And this was also my first try at duplicate stitches,i think i can be hooked on that!!
Like i need another addiction lol lol lol:)



I also CO on today on this dress/tunic for Kristbjörgu Önnu my younger girl,she is 7 and she picked the color yellow because that is the color of the sun:)
I have to knit 12 piece like that for the bottom before connect them all,I'm tired of thinking about it but it will all be worth it in the end:)
I think it will look so cute in the summer whit 3/4 leggings and I'm really would like to knit lace sock whit ruffles whit too,I'm i going overboard or what!
No I don't think so or ...?I'm crazy and everyone knows that!

Flame cap gone wrong.....or maybe NOT.

I was making a flame cap for my 9 year old boy and i was getting gauge and everything but it was way way way to small for him!!I was using 116 st and 3.25mm needles but and sportweight yarn,But I'm not giving up,I will make it again but then i will change 2 things.
But his little brother who will be 2 in May was lucky enough that it fit him perfectly,so he gets to keep it:)

1.go up 2 needles sizez
2.knitting from top down.
