show and tell

Ta Da!!

I finished my very first ever knitting project! An adorable little wool soaker for Boop. I (kindof) used the Ottobre free pattern, but made adjustments along the way to make sure it would fit my chunky baby. I think I did a pretty good job if I do say so myself. It took me awhile, only because I didn't work on it everyday. If I would have, I'm sure I would have finished it a month ago.

It is still a little big on her, but we are good in the diaper department for now, thanks to E's hand-me-downs. But, she is so much bigger than he was as a baby. We never made it to the large sizes with him, so I am working on our large stash - we will be there very soon.

I am so in love with the colors of this yarn.

The whole time I was making it, I was super worried that I would not have enough yarn. I did, but just barely...

And here she is modelling it for us...

A little more show and tell...

I finally got my craft room all set up and unpacked! We moved into this house in March and this was the one thing that kept getting bumped to "tomorrow." Well, I dug in and got it done this weekend. I am so happy to finally have some "me" space. A place to create and chill. A place entirely devoted to the creative spirit. I am excited to see the things that get made in this room. More importantly, I am excited to see who I become out of spending time in here.
