Dear blog, you have been neglected. Apologies!! This week has been a little rough.
While I don’t plan to fill you in on what’s going on quite yet, here are some pretty pictures of my recently completed commissions. Created for some of David’s former coworkers who are having their first baby in May.
Poor kid, they’re totally going to dress her up and doing those weird sleeping baby photos. Adorable, but also a little creepy, yes? To each their own.
I knit the hat and diaper cover out of Lion Brand Fisherman’s wool. I made the ears positionable by snaking thin gauge jewelry wire in the wrong sides of the ears.
I admit, I am pretty pleased with myself that they turned out so nicely.
She also requested a strawberry hat.
I used this pattern and then went back and stitched in the seeds. I think if I had to do it again, I’d do it as I knit the hat.
