my first wollmeise + some sewing

My camera was very opposed to this exact color of red. I had to mess around with the saturation a little; hopefully it looks close to right. Anyway… Yay! I have finally seen for myself what this Wollmeise craze is all about. I have to say, I don’t really understand it. It’s nice yarn, but I definitely still like Cherry Tree Hill Supersock the best. It’s been my favorite sock yarn for a very long time.

There is also a new nightgown for Edda. I used this pattern, but left out the sleeve elastic. The fabric was some kind of stretch knit material that I found in my mom’s fabric bin. She’s wearing a 5T in this dress now! That’s the largest size. She has had so many of these dresses in the last 3 and a half years… It’s sad that we’ll have to move on to a more “big girl” style.

*sniff*

She had to take a milk break halfway through our photo shoot.

Maybe a new purse is in order. You know, now that she’s a big girl and all.

I’ve also been working on a new winter sweater for Walter. It’s almost done!

(Edited to add: I found out that there are more sizes for the “sweet little dress” patttern now! That makes things a little emotionally easier for me.)

About Jessi

I'm married. I'm a mom of two. I love dogs and almost all other animals. I like to think about things for a long time. I like all crafts (except scrapbooking. ugh.) I like running. I like cooking and baking. I analyze everything. I stress out too much. I like coffee. I love having a husband that tells me to chill out. I'm thankful for a God that loves me in spite of my many failures.
