I have two FOs to share with you today! Click on the image above to head on over to Tami's blog to see what everyone else has finished lately.
First is the lace shawl that I made for my mom. Took me a really long time but I learned so much during the process!
Here is a close-up of some of the lacework:
And one of my mom wearing it:
For my first ever attempt at lace, I'm happy with it.
This next project I just LOVE! Loved knitting it, love the finished product, love the recipient. It's the Baby Tiered Coat and Jacket (available on Ravellry.com). I started off with the intent to make the jacket (three tiers). Sophie is only 6-months old but is into 12-month clothes in some instances - so I started to knit the 12-month size. As I was working on the first tier I clued into the fact that she may be round, but is not as long as a 12-month-old would be, so I decided to stop at one tier. When knitting the arms, I knit the 12-month size but used the 6-month length. I gave it to her as a baptism gift and I was SO excited to hear that it actually fit her well!
I love seeing pictures of the kids I knit for in the pieces I've made for them! Here's one of Miss Sophie wearing the coat!
And, finally, my announcement:
I'm engaged! He popped the question about a week ago - he hid the ring in the bottom of my bowl of popcorn! I'm sooo excited!...and already overwhelmed with wedding planning! We're going to get married on August 13th of this year.
