Kind of like an everything bagel, only without the garlic. I save the garlic for other posts. Otherwise we’ve got it all; the 52 project, knitting, sewing, the weather, a tree…
I’m having issues with the auto-focus on my camera. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.
Seraphina’s new Baby Bubble Bloomeralls! Ack! Don’t you just want to kiss her cheeks?!? I modified the pattern to include a button closure between the legs for easier diaper changes/potty using. The yarn is Capra DK in ‘Velveteen’. I’ve been itching for an excuse to make her something in this color for ages now.
Ok and now the weather, because she’s out in that, in the middle of December! It’s so crazy. There’s green grass in these pictures! We were out getting our Christmas tree in sweaters. With no snow boots. This all feels very strange and kind of wrong. I’m not sure what to make of it. But it was rather nice not to have our fingers and toes going numb while waiting for everyone to decide exactly which tree was the right tree.
After cleaning out her drawers it turns out that Mairi Rose basically had the two pairs of velour pants I made her last year left to cover the lower half of her body- daytime or night time. This did not seem to be enough, so in between quilt sewing (did I mention I’m actually working on two quilts now?) I’ve been making leggings. Pretty much all the same pattern in different fabrics. I haven’t really been keeping track of them all. Let’s see, there was another pair of velour ones in a tan color, these stripped ones that I mentioned before and a pink and purple stripped pair… Basically just assume that I made any pants you see her in from here on out! I thought the last two weren’t really warm enough for winter wear (as it turns out I may have been wrong! It’s got to hit sometime, right?). As I was out of really thick stretchy fabric, I jumped at a sale and got a yard each of a handful of things. She picked out some bubble gum pink cotton fleece with roses on it. There was enough to make an attached skirt as well. She liked that idea and I figured two layers of fleece would be warmer than one.
Tomorrow we are baking cookies. I have some last minute knitting to do and if I get the chance, I’d like to do it alongside a nice period piece (tv show, mini-series or movie), because that’s just the kind of mood I’m in, any suggestions?
