Knitting Season

Wow, September flew by! All of the sudden it is crisp and cool.....perfect knitting weather! YAY! When I learned to knit last year about this time, I was addicted. I couldn't imagine a day going by that didn't include knitting, but once spring and summer came, I wanted to put down my needles and do other things. That has passed! There is just something so comforting about knitting in cool weather. I have a few WIPs that I need to finish up, and I am making hats for the girls. Then I think I might just try to tackle a sweater for me! Maybe........seaming still makes me nervous........ :)

Now on to a couple of completed projects.

Do you remember the doll I made Eve for her birthday?? Mia was Eve's favorite thing. She took her everywhere......that was until a visit to Kohls one day in June. I searched the store for and hour. I am not sure who cried more, me or Eve. Well, I made some dolls for a friend and I decided it was time to make another Mia . The Olive pattern gets easier every time I do it, which is good, because the first time was a PITA! So here is Mia with her new friends, Livy and Kitty. I finished Mia in the middle of the night, and decided to put her in bed with Eve. When she woke up there was a squeal from her bedroom and she ran into me saying "Mommy! Mia came home!!"

This fun package was for a secret mom swap I do every month. The girl I had sews quite a bit, so I kept is simple. I did a draw string bag with some note cards and a little pin cushion that matched. I also included a box of chocolates, because, well, who doesn't need chocolate?? I hope she likes it!
