Doing the Happy Dance!! =)

Doing the happy dance!! Last night I finished our granddaughter Kelly's Christening gown and as soon as Grandpa takes photos of her in it I will post them. The dress turned out amazingly well! I'm quite pleased with it. =)
And I was worried that I wouldn't finish it on time...isn't that hilarious? Who me, worried? lol See? There wasn't anything to worry about....I got it done in time and still have 3 days in which to wash and block it. Now I get to start my sweater! Three cheers for me...... hip, hip, hooray! (go ahead and finish up the other two cheers for me, will ya please?) I'm too tired. =)

P.S. The angel photo of Kelly was taken last weekend by my hubby - aka Grandpa. =)

Almost there!!!

Our grand-daugter Kelly Marie will be baptized this Sunday. Already 3 1/2 months old, can you believe it??!! The dress she will be wearing for the occassion has been knit by Grandma ~ ME! =) Oh and did I fail to mention that it is not finished yet?? Today is Tuesday, she's being baptized on Sunday and IT'S NOT FINISHED YET!

Have no fear....I only have about 2 inches left on the skirt to do, then it's an eyelet row followed by the bead row, then binding off. No sweat! Who me, worry? I'll post the photo ~ complete with baby in it ~ when it is complete....which it WILL be before Sunday!! You can bank on that.

The really good news is that once the dress is finished I can FINALLY start on my cardigan. =) I got the pattern from Knitpicks So adorable!! I chose the color Oregon Coast, which is the color in one of the samples.
