Shop Update!

I have updated the shop with everything that's leftover from Black Sheep. There are a lot of new things I dyed up especially for the show now up on the site. I even have a couple of new colorways to share, which I will put up here as soon as I get photos. Everything takes so much more time with 2 little ones! We are slowly getting into a routine and I can see dyeing in my future! Yay!

Zebra Stripe Dress

Currently on the needles:

This is the Zebra Striper (rav link) from Dale of Norway. I'm not past all the colorwork, now onto the miles of yellow stockinette. 

I am knitting the smallest size, which is 6 month. It should fit baby F around Christmas. I think it will be perfect and so very cute when it is all finished!

Impress Set

I'm still getting caught up posting about all of the knitting I did before the new little one got here. This is the Impress Set (ravelry link):

I really love this dress! It was a very fun knit. I knit it out of my Panda Silk DK. Main color is undyed. The two accents are Berry Pie and Pear Blossom. I really love this yarn! I'm only sad that about the time I finished this dress I got a message saying this yarn had been discontinued. So all I have in the shop is what is available (plus 2 skeins of Pear Blossom I haven't had time to put up yet). I might end up keeping a bit of it for myself because I really loved working with it!

Here are the matching bonnet and booties. The bonnet currently fits and is totally adorable! I really should get a picture of it, because it is way too cute! I really am starting to love bonnets for newborns. The trouble I have with hats is they always manage to fall over the baby's eyes and then they cry. With a bonnet it stays where it's supposed to and keeps their little heads warm and protected! I might just have to knit a couple more bonnets in bigger sizes as she grows older!

In case the silence on the blog wasn't enough of a clue, yes, our new little one is here!

We had a bit of an adventure with her wanting to come a bit early, but she got here just on time. She is a perfect little angel. We have settled right in. These are the tiny socks I knit her. They are a tiny bit too big, so she might get to wear them for a little while longer. She is still too small for most of the handknits, but I know she will be wearing them all too soon!
