~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.

DSC_0076 I love the button band on the right side. The wooden buttons just really make this little vest shine. I can’t wait to see baby Finn in this. So cute.

~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.

Clearly I hope for the same things each year. Health and happiness for myself and my family. I always yearn for more time to do the things I need to do and to do the things I want to do. I want to achieve balance in my work and free time. I want to prioritize my obligations and still have time to be creative. I want to be a good wife and a good mom.

I want to nurture my spirituality, my health, and my creativity and that of  my family.

Wishing you the best 2013 and that it will be all that you need it to be.
