Spread The Love

I received these handmade hearts in the mail recently from Viva Scrapper. It's all part of the Pay It Forward Handmade movement. I think they are adorable and may need to make some in a pillow size for my daughters room!
Do you want to spread the love too?
All you have to do is leave a comment and I'll mail a handmade gift to the first 3 to respond. I haven't decided what that gift will be, but I will get it to you in the next few weeks! All you have to do is promise to repeat the process. Post on your blog and offer gifts to 3 people who will do the same. You can sew it, knit it, crochet it, embroider it! Just make sure you ROCK IT!

Circus Monkey

Last week was busy, glad it is over.
Bunco, softball, and making costumes for tomorrow's dance performance.
I did however find time to start this sock. My knitting group decided we should do a monthly sock knit-a-long, this is our first pattern.
Pattern: Monkey by Cookie A.
Yarn: Circus Tent by Yarn Chef

I've been knitting baby items lately. I like them because they are fast, easy, and cute.
Kinda like me 15 years ago.
My friend Pogo just had the cutest little boy named Tiber and I am working on the baby version of Cobblestone for him. The pattern is Pebble and I'm using Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed in Beanshoot.
I just finished the Umbilical Cord hat for another friend. She has two boys and I am having so much fun knitting and shopping for girlie things for her. I DID NOT KNIT THIS SWEATER! I know. The horror. But I couldn't knit it for the price I bought it. Baby Gap has the best sales area and I got this regularly priced $34.50 sweater for only- drum roll please...
Can you believe it was marked down to $10.97 and then had an additional 25% off all sale items ?
It's fully lined with t-shirt material and has a nice smooshiness too it. So I found some pink stash that matched the sweater and knit this hat to go with it. I think I have enough left over to crank out some booties before the baby shower too!
