Last night, while watching the Phillies win Game 5 of the World Series, I finished Elizabeth’s 1st dress.
This pattern required a lot of hand stitching, specifically slip-stitching. Due to this fact, a month had passed between when I had cut the fabric out and when I had gathered up the momentum to sew the dress together. Yet, it turned out to be the perfect baseball project, filling the countless minutes (hours!) of TV commercials.
Pattern: Simplicity 2900 from their vintage collection
Fabric: a gift, the mundu from a sari made in India
Size: Small (6 months)
In the mail, Elizabeth received another gift.
This yellow bunny was hand knit by Nicole, author of Throws Like a Girl blog. I had won a small contest on her blog, guessing correctly on how long it took her to make mac-n-cheese on her grill (1.5 hours!). As a prize, she offered to knit something for Elizabeth. She picked this pattern. Isn’t it adorable? I’m just so thrilled and thankful.
Elly is quite active these days.
Visits to the midwife have increased to biweekly.
My wedding rings no longer fit. I wear them on a chain now.
The pregnancy shirt I made may not make it the full 9 months. It already feels a bit short in the front.
