Getting Knitty with it...

C and K playing together the other morning. I can't wait til they are able to play together a lot of the time. It's so sweet to watch.
Not the best pic b/c I was in between the playstand but I knew if I moved they would stop playing. That's our fat cat Midnight in the cozy corner in the background. Last time we weighed him he was at 17lbs!!!

I am still avoiding finishing the knitted farmyard. I'm just so frustrated with it right now so I'm settling my mind with other projects. You saw the hat and mittens for C and I just finished a hat for K and an working on the mittens. Pics of that to be posted later :)

I had a custom order from a wonderful mama in C's due date club. This little lamb is her baby's Christmas present. I feel honored to have the opportunity to make this lamb for him.

I decided C needed a sweater to match the one I made for K (for her birthday) It's a little big on her but that's perfect for her to grow into this winter.

C also outgrew her booties so I knitted her another pair but altered the pattern to make them bigger. This yarn is my favorite I LOVE the pink/orange color combo. It's by Three Irish Girls and the color way is 'Fiona' which also happens to be the name of K's best friend!

I didn't make this autumn fairy but I had to share it. She looks so sweet hanging from an oak tree branch above our nature table.

You are so talented! I really like seeing what you do.

I've been enjoying my two kiddos playing together, too. It's nice while it lasts!

Ooooh lovely, I think the blue sweater is the same pattern I made for my son! I love it...I'm making leg warmies now...I just learned to knit in september...I love it...can't believe I waited so long to I can't stop! I love the pic of the girls sweet. Sisters are special...mine is my best friend...she even took off 2 years to watch my daughter when I went back to work the first time...consequently they have an amazing bond.
Yours in thinking about sisterly love,

Thank you everyone. Sorry I am slow in responding lately!

Aren't siblings the best?! I am so happy we want a big family to let all our crazy kiddos play together... I'm no looking forward to the fighting though!

Amanda- I didn't make the pilot cap. It's made by Ruskovilla. I picked it up locally at Kinderhaus Toys. A super talented mama made C one thats more beautiful (and is actually making her another one now)her store is at:

Kimberley- Isn't knitting addictive?! I only learned about 2 years ago and I'mhooked. I always have to be knitting something now. What an amazing sister you have! Wow! That is so sweet!

Marina- <3 Thank you! Are you in labor yet?!?!?
