{You Guys Are Awesome}

Thank you so so so much to everyone who answered my questions in the last post.  Overwhelmingly the advice you gave me was to let them be, add the buttons, and call it a day.  So that's what I'll do.   I've ordered some dark wood buttons to put on the back and I think I'll crochet a little hook on the end of the flip tops.  Done!

On to the next project, right?  I couldn't resist baby clothes any longer.  Have I mentioned how much in LOVE I am with my niece?    I've got a great outfit in mind for her Christmas present.  These are the cutest little pants of all time:

These are so dang cute!!  I found an acrylic in dark blue that has flecks of other colours in it randomly that I'll use, and I'm definitely planning on embroidering the jeans style details!

Then, for on top, I'm thinking this sweater from Berroco:

pattern: baby picchu

I'm thinking cream like this one, but with a cute little yellow crochet trim to match the pants.  I'm super excited about starting this one!  It should fly off the needles!  

As soon as I have finished pics to show, you guys will see them first. :)  I wish I could share ALL the knitting I'm thinking about but right now there are many gifts in the pre-process stage and I don't want to ruin any surprises!

13 days and counting until classes start!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!


  1. I think you'd love this: I'm working on it right now again. There's hardly any seaming in this one. :)

  2. cute! 13 days, you had to remind me didn't you...

  3. I am in love with the sweater and the little mock jeans. How precious!

  4. those are so cure,. both pieces! Nice work. I need to get my little needles out again.
