Little Things to Sew

My crafty friends should enjoy this book. It's sewing, not knitting, but I LOVE the other patterns she has written (the book isn't here yet). The details in the patterns I have are beautiful and the instructions are crystal clear:

Valentine's Day Hearts

This is the Baby Tiered Coat and Jacket pattern available on Ravelry. It knits all in one piece and was super quick and easy -- and my first completed sweater! I'm working on sewing (gasp!) a dress to match so she'll have a full V-Day outfit made by Mommy.

While you are working on your Valentine's Day projects, please remember the little hearts who need some help: Congenital Heart Disease affects one in every 100 births. The costs on families (both emotional and financial) are huge. Many children need multiple surgeries over many years, sometimes far away from home. Please consider giving to Spencer's Fund, providing support to these families and their special little ones.

This top was a dress

A dress! This was a dress I made for her in April. April! Of this past year! If this keeps up, I'm soon going to be the shortest person in the house again.

The yarn is Debbie Bliss Cotton Cashmere purchased at Loops and the pattern is the free pattern Child's Play Top from Lion Brand.
