Out of Hibernation

Like many of you, I have been hibernating, thus the long absence.

Pretty White Trees

My knitting mojo returned during the winter, and I whipped up these adorable mocassins for an old friend's new little girl. Aren't they darling? They're by Whit Van Ness for The Purl Bee.

Cutest Things Ever, Right?!

I started and finished the Dijon Sweater by our friends at Fairmount Fibers. It's with Manos del Uruguay, which is the yarn that Fairmount Fibers distributes, which is handmade in Uruguay on a women's collective. Gorgeous yarn, great cause...it's a win for all.

Dijon Detail

Over a brunch with my knitting gals, we decided I needed to redo the top. I'm glad I did it, so that the end result is much nicer, and the inside looks just as pretty as the outside. Before you think I became too classy, please note that I posed wearing this unfinished sweater flashing my armpit holes.

Dijon Inside - Still Lookin' Good!

I'm so proud of myself for this sweater. It's my third one, but it actually fits very well and looks better than I anticipated. Not too shabby for this lady.

Dijon Finito!

I also wanted to share the gorgeous crocheted afghan my dear friend recently Clara made us for our wedding. She picked colors that were in our wedding, and it's such a special gift. Thank you Clara! You will be receiving a heartfelt, severely overdue letter!

Loving My Afghan from Clara!

Happy March!

I'm so glad you're back - I missed you! Those little moccasins are the cutest thing I've ever seen. Ever. And your sweater is awesome. I can't fathom undoing and redoing that work ('cause I'm lazy like that), so extra congratulations to you.
