Purple Baby Poncho

I just started crocheting this poncho for Lina.  Will update when it is completed.

My first Grandchild, Lina Maria



On January 13, 2012, Lina Maria was born.  She weighed 7 lbs. 4.2 ozs. and was 21 3/4 inches long.  She is a miracle and has touched my heart in ways I never would have imagined.  Here are a few photos of her.

Cupcake Cap

This is my first completed knitting project using DPN's, yes I said it, DPN's.  I have been so afraid of these and would not use a pattern that required their usage.  I finally became brave and did this one all by myself.  I figured it out and faced my fear head on, so to speak!  I am so so excited.  I am currently working on a pair of baby leg warmers using DPN's, I am now addicted to them.

The pattern is from "60 Quick Baby Knits" from Cascade Yarns, such a great book!

Crocheted Dress and Sweater with Matching Hat

I am expecting my first Granddaughter in January and I have been so busy crocheting and knitting.  These are two of many items that I have made for her.
The dress is a pattern from Bella Bambino and the sweater and matching hat is a pattern that my knitting teacher gave me.  Thanks Carmen you are the best!
My daughter has not seen these so shhhhhhh!  She never checks my blog so I wanted to share with my fellow bloggers.

David's Sweater

I started this sweater last spring and finally finished knitting it and I sewed it together today, yes the hottest day of the June.  I still need to finish the neck.  I am very proud of myself as this is the first item that I actually knitted for an adult.  Thanks to my teacher who taught me a few years ago the love of knitting.
