:: Finally!!! ::

Happy hump day everyone!!! Wow, it's the middle of the week already.
Boy it's gone by quickly.

Well, without further ado, I give you what I have renamed the "Headache, pull out my hair, but oh so easy" shawl.
This was my first attempt at something lacy and wearable for an adult.
I recycled some denim cotton yarn from a skirt that I crocheted for myself last the 4th of July. (The skirt felt too thick and heavy).
So I found a pattern labeled "Easy" and dared myself to actually start and finish.
Not too shabby, huh?
My daughter loved it!!! It's just the kind of thing she loves to throw over a tank top for cool evening strolls with her little ones.

Next, my very first knitting in the round project. I found it soooo easy!!!
A bit uncomfortable on the hands, but I guess it takes some getting use to.

I wanted to knit something special to give to Milla for her 7th birthday. So I came up with this pattern from
A very pretty three tiered skirt, the yarn over increases make for a very pretty eyelet design.
She loved it, paired with a little peasant top, it is a cute summer outfit.

I am now officially a knitter. Yay!!!

Of course I couldn't leave out a bit of the hooky from this post. So I'm including something I made just for fun.
Dolly and me hats for Milla and her American Girl doll. I just had to relax after all that knitting. :)

Well my dears, that's about it for now.
I am in the lookout for a nice pattern for a crocheted summer skirt, any suggestions?

Have a fantastic rest of your weekend.
