To hand over months and months of work to your postal worker takes courage my friend. They cannot possibly understand the importance of the package in their mailbag. The day I received the news that my gift had reached its recipient, I breathed a sigh of relief. And now, I can share with you the pictures of the baby blanket. I will say that while I love the finished product, the pattern was written so poorly that I cannot recommend this pattern to anyone.
The blanket was the big project, taking me at least 4 months to complete.
After something like that, well, I needed to go small scale. There was a partially completed little owl laying in my knitting bag, so I finished knitting him. I had made a smaller one for Peter a while back. Anna really liked the new owl, so it is hers.
I ordered some yarn for a new project that will require sewing along with knitting and several other new techniques. Hopefully my mailbox will have fluffy yarn in it today. While waiting, I saw a pattern for a little mouse on Ravelry. Using scraps, I made this:
Anna crocheted a little skirt for the mouse. I am currently trying to knit a little dress. The first attempt did not go well. As in, after watching a tutorial on making a two stitch buttonhole (which are the armholes for the sweater), I succeeded in making 2 armholes on each side. I will try again. Until then, she looks cute in her skirt, don't you think?
Thank you Ginny, for hosting.
