There is something so precious about a bishop dress. I LOVE them. My goal is to learn how to smock and pleat..insert shudder… Oh Lord. Maybe one day, but in the meantime I will make bishop dress’. I used The Scientific Scientist Bebop Bishop Pattern. I love the small print of this Densyse Schmidt Croquet fabric. My buttonholer gave me fits and I had to scrap the buttons. I made buttonholes The Old Fashioned Baby way. Oh me, nerve wracking. They are not perfect, but they will do I suppose. The sweater is The Vine Lace Cardi. I love, love, love this sweater. All we need are a pair of mary- janes and a pair of tights and a baby. ~ Swoon~
~knitting for little ones~
It’s been so long since my last yarn along! So happy to have a little more time to knit and for a baby no less, my favorite kind of projects!!
The Pebble pattern this pattern is quick and easy. I love the design of this pattern. Knit all in one, from the bottom up and finishing off at the shoulders. It was interesting. I have never knit a pattern constructed this way and that made this pattern ever more fun.
*so hard to take good photos in January!
~I love winter. I love winter especially on the weekends when I don’t have to go out. I love staying in my flannel pj’s and lazing about.

( can’t show you because I’m blocking and need to add buttons)
I hope it fits!
I love winter!
I love the time when I can just sit and knit. Early in the morning or often late at night. All is quiet and the house is calm. There is time to sit and be still while keeping my hands busy. It takes me a long time to finish my knitting projects, but I do eventually finish. I always have a project tucked away in my knitting bag. I have a long list of projects “to do” and I am satisfied with my plans. If I could do everything I want to do right now, then what would I have to look forward to? I do not want to have everything done “right now.” Anticipation and planning. Hoping and waiting. Dreaming. It’s a good thing, this exercise in patience, right?
Gosh, it’s been a while since I’ve yarned along. I made this cute little Little Jenny Wren Pinafore eek, so cute!
I used some very lovely yarn from Brambleberry Yarns,this yarn is English Rose. Isn’t it beautiful? I loved knitting each row, watching as the color softly changes from one to the next. It is so pretty and soft. As I am looking at this yarn I can smell lavender. Cynthia tucked in a little sachet of lavender in among the yarns.
Joining Ginny this week.
Joining Ginny this week…
Not too much knitting going on here, I have been working diligently making my daughter her new doll. Her birthday is Tuesday and I am running out of time.
We’ll see, I seem to work best under pressure. On my needles I have the Poppy Sweater pattern, this is going to be a great sweater. I love the yarn and the pattern. I am so close to done..
~ A little peek~
I am planning on taking Friday off so I can really spend some time with this little one. I think she is going to be cute! I hope :)
This week, I am still on doll clothes. My daughter’s birthday is quickly coming up and she has informed me that she wants a waldorf doll with red hair and green eyes. She also would like her doll to have some clothes that look like school clothes, a grey sweater, blue skirt, a white shirt. Yes, of course so, a grey sweater is on the needles. This time I am working on this pattern, and I am trying to remember this yarn, the tag has been lost.. I believe it is Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed Yarn. I think.
I am also working on another pair of baby booties, or dolly shoes. I just love this pattern it is most definitely my go to pattern.
I am on the hunt for a slipper pattern that my grandmother used to make for making our slippers. It was a simple pattern that always had a pom pom on the end of it. I know I’ve seen such patterns, but I need to spend some time finding the right one. I think that would just go perfect with my little nightie. Maybe something like this or this is really cute too.
As far as reading.. I need to gather some books this weekend and perhaps make a new tote, I have jury duty all next week. I am not sure how I feel about all of that, but I know I have to do my civic duty. There is a long list of what you can not bring, so I believe I will be reading quite a bit. I am looking forward to seeing what everyone is reading..
