This bracelet was handmade for one of my
This cute little baby sweater was handmade for our friends, Rachel and Larry. It is the "5 Hour Baby Sweater" pattern from Bev's Country Cottage website. I guess it's true...it does at least take me 5 hours...plus 5-10 hours more. Actually, I adore this pattern. You can easily adapt it to different size needles, yarn, and adornments. This time I tried a single button closer to the waist, so that the button was NOT within mouth range. I think this is my seventh baby sweater. I always get the words of affirmation (oooh...ahhh) that I'm looking for when I give it away!
We met Rachel and Larry at church about nine weeks ago. They were visiting from Australia, so Larry could work on his doctorate at PSU. They returned home on Tuesday. You'll be in our prayers as we know we are in yours. PLEASE send baby photos! "It's just so beautiful, you know? Yeah!"
Oh, I am in so much trouble! This photo is of my sister's vest taken on Monday. I have since finished the left and right front and the back. I have pieced together the shoulders (using the triple needle bind-off). I have added a crochet edge of a contrasting yarn that my sister picked out. Okay, so don't tell my sister, but....I don't want to finish it. It is TOO cute. She picked out such a great color combination and it has turned out...I WANT IT! So, I was going to have it ready and mail it off today, but I changed my mind. It's still here with me. I'll probably finish it up tonight...but I really need to show it to some of my crafty friends before I say "adieu"! Lisa...you're gonna love it!
