Geranium dress

Last night I wanted to make something special for a baby.

We had guests for breakfast, a couple who took the prenatal class with me.
They came to introduce their baby. a lovely girl.

So I decided to try this pattern, and then to add diaper cover, booties and then a bonnet too.

I love the result, and I want to make so many more!

Info: the bonnet is Peekaboo Bonnet (by Rae as the Geranium dress), diaper cover (by Dana) and booties pattern from this store.


Yarn Along :: Tree doll blanket

Yarn Along it's a day of the week to share what you are knitting and reading created by Ginny, you can add your post here every Wednesday or to the flickr group any day. 

I have been so busy. We are so delay on homeschooling work, but it's just that with my kid learning three musical instruments plus theater and chess classes, and my work at the shop, we are kind of full. But instead of freaking out I'll just try to relax, and let things flow.

In the middle of all of this I have only had time to knit some small blankets for my kid's stuffed animals. This one is supposed to be a tree.

My very little reading is the first number of the National Geographic History Encyclopedia that is at the magazine stands every two weeks and we are collecting. I get distracted and I have to re read, but I really want to build some knowledge about history, and the pictures are amazing.

We have been watching Downton Abey and so I got this recipe book, which is great, even when I can't eat most of what is there for the gluten and dairy, but it's full historic details that I love to read.

What's on your needles this week?
