I just have some random things I wanted to share.
Here is the little dress I made for my friend. I hope it fits her little girl. I made a size 4T. She is 4, but on the bigger size of 4. I am gonna be really sad if it doesn't. Usually these patterns run a little big though, I know I still make a 2T for Ava because a 3T would be way too big. I think the godets are so cute, and for some reason I found them alot of fun to sew lol They make the skirt nice and twirly, which is very important when you are 4!
I also picked up my knitting again. I want to learn how to knit socks, so I got some cotton sock yarn and size 3 dpn's and started the Yarn Harlot's sock recipe. So far, so good! Of course, I am still just doing the leg, I havn't gotten to the heel yet lol Oh, and I am not showing you where I joined in the round, not very pretty! I should have started over, but I figure these are my first pair, I will probably mess something else up as well. I don't know why I want to knit socks, I NEVER wear socks, but there just seems to be something soothing about knitting socks, like I am doing something necessary and important(yeah right, maybe 100 years ago lol). So, my sock wearing friends will be receiving socks for gifts soon : D
Dh cut all of my baby boy's curls off yesterday : ( I love his big, crazy hair and get so sad everytime we cut it. He was complaining about how hot it was, though and it was getting bozo big, so it was time. Of course, I had to take pictures! LOL
Please ignore the fact that my husband is wearing his boxer shorts : ] At least he still has his shirt on! LOL The short hair makes him look so much older and taller for some reason.
