Oh dear...

I guess it is not knitting and crafting time now that spring is here! Sad I'm hoping to pick up some wool in town soon, now that I know it's a GIRL! I think the project will have to wait until Fall though.

I now have new yarn, buttons and a pattern. Not sure still when I'll start the project though.:rolleyes:

I'm well started. DH has been away so I've had more time. The pattern has some surprises though that slow me down.

She is beautiful!

Can you say what you are making or is it a surprise?

All done! Guess it won't be a surprise... Wink It will be a while before she fits in it though.

Hey there Harper! Welcome. (I'm thinking Harper Lee, author of To Kill a Mockingbird! Good association for me.)

I'm working on a new project now, in dark green.

Thanks! And while I do like that book, that's not why I'm harper. I play the harp, and in the Celtic world that makes one a harper rather than a harpist.

A harper! Terrific, but hard work and strong fingers required in spite of the ethereal quality of the sound.

Well the green sweater is done as well as a funky hat to match.

And here's a recent shot of Ivy Rayne wearing her red one piece suit with the blue fish buttons. I guess it has been pretty chilly out there in Alberta!

Those are so cute!! I wish that I could make things that quickly, I am so slow.

In early August I made a (very pale) pink hooded jacket for Ivy. It is a size 1 year, so there's plenty of time before it will fit. I forgot to photograph it though, sorry. Maybe DD will post her in it some day soon.

Keep at it Lisa! You never get paid for the time you put into these things unfortunately!;)
