It’s been a few weeks, and I’ve been busy. Look! I made this.
Isn’t she FANTASTIC?!?! Yes, she is. Thanks. Her name is Faora Rose, and we are thrilled that she is finally here.
Needless to say this has been a few weeks of days running into nights into days, but I am very happy & delirious and quite content.
In the precursor to her arrival, I was knitting like a fiend on various small projects, mostly for her. Here is one I love, that I also got to use some tiny bits & bobs of yarn I had laying around (imagine that!).
I was also thrilled to find I had the perfect buttons stowed away for this one.
On the OTHER end of the spectrum, I made her this little Rockabilly cardi with a fun skully fair isle, that I just love.
You will have to suffer through more photos when I actually stick her IN these sweaters. I hope you can handle it.
In other news, I am thrilled it is SPRING – Hooray! I have been a bit lax in chasing flowers, though I hope to remedy that soon as I walk more & more.
Some flowering branches and a gloomy sky.
I managed to pick back up a ‘grown-up’ project from the WAY back of July last year. I had this little skein of Fearless Fibers sock yarn (said many a designer) and wanted to make a single shawl skein. I started off simply enough, and after much pondering, decided to keep the next level simple as well.
Here is where I am now.
I am having fun with this. Of course the variegated yarn always is a challenge to design with, a lot of times I find either a) simple or b) larger patterns show it off better. Trying to do complex lace generally doesn’t work.
I hope you are enjoying your current season, drop me a line and tell me what you are working on! Be well.
