Sense of Accomplishment

The sense of accomplishment is fantastic sometimes.  Being able to start and finish a project like this in a reasonably short period of time makes me feel like I am somehow moving forward and still able to be creative while managing two kids.  Something about making things keeps me on an even keel.  I also like a challenge with each successive project.  This is the first lace knit pattern I have tried.  It is knit in a rectangle then sewn up along the sides to make the arm holes.  I used a worsted weight yarn, too so it went fairly quickly. 








This is the next project.  My first sweater!  It is in the same brand of yarn only in DK weight.  I have finished with the tricky part, the mesh pattern on the front and back so it is smooth sailing from here.  Now I have to figure out how to calculate the remaining yarn I have left.  I think Eliot will have to help me since his math skills have surpassed mine by now!


Some cute baby love.  I dug out some 12 month clothes for her last night because her tops are all too short in the arms and length now!  Growing like a weed.


A final photo to make you laugh.  Eliot gave Willow a set of rubber duckies for Christmas that have become her favorite pacifier.  Eliot has coined the phrase 'duckafier'.

That shrug is adorable and I laughed out loud (and almost woke the sleeping baby on my lap) at your little one with the rubber duck in her mouth! What a wonderful picture! The look on her face is fantastic! x

And I was just thinking she looks a similar age to my youngest daughter and how very right I was! She's a day older :)
