Well, it's sad to see the old blog has taken a back seat to life. Working, knitting, Thanksgiving and Christmas preparation has taken all of my time and left me to tired to blog!! But I do have some finished projects to show. First up are a couple of new hats for Bella. This is the wonderful Juniper Bonnet from Stitch Marker.
I love this pattern. It is nice and big for Bella.
This one is a tiny version for a newborn. I went down a couple of needle sizes. I also left the back open on it. It made the cutest little keyhole, but I forgot to take a picture of it. This is part of a set I made for a new baby. It has the Heartbreakingly Cute Kimono, the bonnet and Saartje's bootees in it.
Of course Bella has to have a Christmas hat. I got this pattern from Knitting on the Net. It is a roll brim hat with really easy holly leaves and berries.
I was very blessed to be part of a brunch for my daughter Rachael and some of her friends from high school. I coached their cheerleading squad for a couple of years and they were wonderful girls that have become even more wonderful women.
Rachael, Cheryl, Christina, and Beth
It was wonderful to see them and catch up on their lives. They have great husbands and kids and are doing a wonderful job with their families. Each one has had to overcome their own adversities- sickness, death, financial, and family problems. Yet they are all a shining example of God's grace and goodness. They are wonderful!!! Did I say that already?? And they are all great moms. We had seven children under three! YIKES!! But it was not the mass chaos that you would think. It was calm and peaceful and we all sat down and ate a wonderful meal-TOGETHER!!
New best friends!!
Thanks so much for letting me tag along, girls. I love you all!!!
