Found some BEAUTIFUL yarn while on a trip. This was a special colorway for the shop I was in. I don't really like how it turned out, but the yarn was a joy to work with.

Our sweet 12 yr old daughter has been super crafty this summer and decided to make her sister a dress! This one has been a favorite around here because it is easy to make and easy to wear for summer. Pattern only comes in size 4. We are so proud of our kiddos when they find something that interests them!

A cardigan that fits! I don't know if you saw the last one I made, but it was massive. Larger than a size 3x, so I didn't know anyone to model it. I LOVE it so much! It is a pattern called the Campside Cardi. Made with yarn that I found on super sale for $3 per ball and as you can see, I used three balls- one of each color. I've already started knitting another sweater for myself with a different pattern, but I plan on making this again.

The house rules have been on a plain white sheet of paper put up with tape. Years and years, the same paper moved and re-taped. When I saw these little chalkboards at the dollar tree, I had an idea for a fancy new update!

One of my favorite embroidery designers made this some time ago. I edited out the many lazy daisy stitches and just stuck to the heart of the message. It is a reminder I still haven't had enough of.

Even with no baby around to knit for I couldn't pass up this cutie. I used 2 strands of yarn together but I'd like to make it again with just one. This turned out a bit heavy.

I'm working toward a knitting goal this year so this quick hat seemed like a good way to move forward and use up some stashed yarn.
