Mae Louise

Welcome Mae Louise! She was born at home on April 5th, just after midnight. She was a day shy of being 3 weeks overdue and it took a bunch of castor oil to convince her to come out, but once she made up her mind she thankfully did not take long, about 4 hours of labor and 7 minutes of pushing! She is a wonderful and sweet babe!

Rosalind Cardigan Completed!

This was a fun project, and I am excited to say it actually looks good on me! Better than the mannequin at least since I have arms! Better pictures to come...

It was quick to knit and is a cropped length to look good on everyone since it is more of a swing sweater and does not have side shaping. The sleeves have two options, it is shown here in a 3/4 length sleeve, but also has a full length option. I have the pattern off to the printers soon and will be available by the end of the month.
