Big Lace Scarf

This is the Big Lace Scarf from More Last Minute Knitted Gifts and an attempt to use up a large cone of fall colored wool. It was a quick knit and I've tucked it away until it finds a home.

Hat for a Young Friend

This hat is the Koolhaas Hat by Jared Flood. It took 52 grams of worsted weight yarn for the smaller size and two days of knitting. It looks even better on a head, but it needed to head out the door pronto as a friend leaves town, so this photo will have to do.

A Little Dress with a story

Once upon a time, there was a little girl born to two parents, two sisters and three brothers. Her sisters doted upon her, so much so that her oldest sister sewed many clothes for her. She also had plans to sew things that never ended up getting finished. When that baby girl grew up and had a baby girl, her big sister gave her some red fabric with numbers woven into it for her to make something for her little girl. However, the little girl-now-mama lost track of time and soon her little girl was a teenager and the red fabric still sat in her sewing boxes. One day a friend with a love of all things vintage had a baby girl and the red fabric was taken out and finally made into a little dress. I think it has finally found the proper home--vintage pattern, vintage fabric, new little girl. And there is still enough for one more little dress. Perhaps someday the little girl-now-mama will make a similar one for her little girl's little one....
