projects and stuff

Today is a day I'm just glad to be home at the end of the day. Still haven't scrapped...or made any cards. But this weekend I finished up to knitting projects for new babies that are due in December.

This little sweater coat is for my cousin's baby...she has a little boy and now she is expecting a girl! This was my first time seaming a sweater. So the sleeves are a little wacky but the sides came out pretty well. I hate picking up stitches to do edging but I'm quite proud of how the seam came along the inside back of the neck from my picked up stitches! The yarn is bamboo and so nice to work with...
Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo DK.

The next project is a record for me. I cast on Sunday morning and finished Sunday night after about 3-4 hours of knitting! It's a sweet baby bonnet out of the softest yarn Plymouth Baby Bunny. The picture doesn't do the soft pink justice....this is for a girl I used to work with who has two little boys and is having her first baby girl...

I'm really hoping to do some scrapping this long weekend. But a new purchase
might take some of my attention! Ally McBeal The Complete Collection. It was a splurge for me and my mom. We've been waiting years for this!

Happy Wednesday

Hi Emily! I'm finally catching up with all my blog friends; I've got some stuff going on at home right now - I'm sorry I haven't been stopping by as often :(

I hope all's well in your part of the world!

Gorgeous!! Those little girls will be so spoiled by your sweet gifts. :) I'm so impressed. I barely had the patience to finish the simple square blanket I knitted for Dylan.

Oh and the Ally McBeal DVDs sound like fun! I loved that show.
