Adventures in Lace Knitting: Part Three - The Distractions

While the STB shawl project is still in time out, I've found a few nicer things to occupy my time this spring weekend.

First, I started knitting the Amelie Dress from Natural Knits for Moms and Babies. I've been eyeing this pattern for a while now. And the perfect opportunity came up when my dear friend announced her new baby is a girl. Act surprised when you get this Jen!

My other distraction is this baby quilt for another friend (seriously...I think there's something in the water...). I'm especially excited about this quilt, because I designed it. I have to say, the thing I'm loving most about sewing is the designing process. It's no secret that following directions isn't my best feature, but I do love getting an idea, sketching it out in my book, then getting to work.

I love the material for the quilt. You need a list on your blog of who is pregnant, when they are due, the gender and the project progress!! You are a very busy girl.

I will be totally surprised and in awe of your beautiful work!!! Your the best!!

OOohh. Love the quilt. I have several of those Urban Chic fabrics in my stash (at least I think that's the name of the fabric?)

I'm excited to see the dress, and I know what you mean. I have 4 friends who are pregnant. I'm not. Whew!
