It's a Girl

We just found out that friends of ours that now live in Washington are awaiting the arrival of their daughter due to make her appearance to our world next month, (Jan). This is their second child. Their first is a son named Ian and he was born last October, 2007. They are a wonderful couple and I am sure great parents and I hope to get too see their beautiful children. They are so truly blessed.

Anyway, I naturally had to make something for the baby at that moment and below are photos of my efforts. Just a quick note to mentioned that I used an "F" sized hook and the yarn of choice was SWTC's Amerah, which is 100 percent silk. It is a beautiful yarn but it sure sticks to your hook as you're working with it. The color was "Lush" and the flower and trim are done with Lion brand cotton. Here are the photos, one a close up and the other a shot of the entire dress.

Coming soon.....A bonnet or hat to match the dress, I haven't decided yet. Also I am working on a scarf for my brother in-law whom is a lawyer. I wanted something very manly and I love this yarn and the pattern.

Until next time.

I will close for now but wanted to wish all of my readers a wonderful day.

P.S., I go this morning to get my stitches out and I can't wait.

Your work touches so many lives and bring such beautiful blessings on them. I know you can't wait to go to the doctor. Hope your hands are feeling better today.
