A big thanks to Kathryn and Michelle for dropping by! Kathryn, you're complete right. A small project is just what I needed! And here it is:
This is the first of what will probably be many little afghans for the American Girl dolls. I haven't been able to put it down. It's a quick knit, small and super portable. And the pattern is easy to memorize once you get going. The pattern is by Jennifer L. Jackson. I really love it and am almost finished with the sucker! And my daughter loves it too! She's so excited and I think her excitement has helped keep me knitting on this sucker.
And Michelle, you are special, even with no knitting mojo! I love and miss you very much, too. I miss our girls playing while we knit and I wish I'd gotten my tattoo with you. That would have been awesome!
Saturday I celebrated my birthday and it was simple wonderful. We went to a lovely little yarn shop in South Carolina, ate out and I gorged on cheesecake. Yeah, I'm a vegetarian, not vegan....I can't give up my chocolate and cheesey goodness!
My little afghan should be finished this week and then I'm starting the pattern I picked up this weekend. Can't wait to show it to you!
