Never Too Many Pictures

I get so excited when I have a finish, I can't get enough photos! It's like I want to *pin down* the joy I feel. So please bear with me. :)


It turns out I had just the right shank button in my vintage tub. Perfect.



I've never done a top-down pattern before and *really* liked not having to sewing it all together. When I was done knitting, I was done! I took this to work yesterday and showed a few coworkers who also knit or sew or craft. The unanimous response was to get a pained look on their face and say, "Oohhhh... it's sooo cute!" We always like things that are small scale, but it is sweet, and sooo soft. :)


And of course the Dbl Four Strippy. It feels huge; a queen after all, but when we tacked it to the side of the house, it didn't seem that big.
I'm not exactly resting on my laurels, but I'm pretty happy.

You've inspired me. I'm going to try to complete a baby sweater for our new grandson before he gets too big for it. Yours is so pretty, and so soft-looking. And I love that quilt!
