I’ve been knitting. Probably doesn’t seem like it given my lack of posts on knitting.
March took me to MN to help throw my youngest sis Rachel a baby shower. It was a joyous and fun day involving great food, fun (non-cheesy) games and much shared laughter.
Fancy foods, the theme was pink.
One game I thought creative and engaging had the gals modelling a baby (animal, person, totally open to interpretation) out of play-doh.
Many handmade gifts were given to Rachel.
Sis Ali cross stitched a botanical sampler Lillian’s name will be added to:
I made Rachel a Baby Sweater on Two Needles by Elizabeth Zimmerman. What a blast! I highly recommend the pattern. Details in a post to follow.
This lovely little dress, knit in Madelintosh Sock, had me cooing and squishing it repeatedly. Rachel, though she doesn’t knit, is a member of a Stitch n’ Bitch back in MN. Many of its members were present. I enjoyed sharing ‘knit-speak’ with them. Rachel is a sewer and a quilter so she has handwork at the ready.
Wee booties and a crocheted hat and cloth:
REALLY wee booties:
I met some new folks (and visited with some of Rachel’s friends I haven’t seen in years) that day. Lots of love shared!
