Benjamin's Summer Shorties

Barb is one of my BFF! She has an adorable son, Benjamin.

See I told you he was cute! Anyway, I knit these shorties for him! they are delicious. Seriously.

These shorts are on the way to their new owner, and I can hardly wait for action shots!

I have found 2 testers for my skirty! SO excited to do girlie!

Julee & Jenn! I am waiting on trim yarn & measurements from Julee and yarn from Jenn! So excited!

Oh it's been SO long!

Well I've not posted, but I have been knitting! I actually have been knitting a ridiculous amount!

Let's see.

I knit, a Hudson hat for a benefit. A super sad story, so if you're in the market for some small/medium longies and a matching Hudson, this is a great opportunity to do something good!

I finished Stacy's longies for the photography studio...but forgot to take a finished picture! Pity! They're SUPER cute! But I'm sure Stace will send some to me once she uses them!
Here they are as a "WIP"

Yes they are SUPER bright :)

I finished a birthday hat for one of my BEST FRIENDS, Stacy. It was the first I'd made from this pattern, so I had to try it on to make sure it fit! I apologize in advance for the way I look! Myspace-esque photos aren't my best!

And this last hat I finished for a really good and sweet person. It's a surprise.
**again with the myspace pic!**

Gabriel, my almost 1 year old (tomorrow is his birthday) also loves the surprise hat I made.

I also just bought a skirty pattern! I'm ridiculously excited to try it! If you want to be a tester for it, please email me!

One mroe for today..

...unless I become TOTALLY ambitious. With 2 sick kids, I'm not thinking that's going to happen!

Anna's Hudson Hat! I'm pretty sure that this is my favorite Hudson Hat I've ever made. I LOVE the that this hat is SO girlie without being ALL pink!

Stacy Jacobsen Photography!

Stacy and I have been BFF (best friends forever) since 6th grade! I'm no math whiz, but that is a long time! :) She is one of the most gifted photographers I have ever met! She sent me this picture of my hat, and of one of the sweetest, snuggliest newborns ever! (Totally got uterus twinges!) Here's her website

& Just for fun, my family picture shot by Stace in December!

Nikki Borchardt Photography!

Nikki is a fabulous photographer! She bought the Iced Mocha Hadley hat from my Etsy shop.

She sent me these photos:

Check out her photography website

Leah's Birthday Girl Hat!

Stacie, Leah's mom & I have been friends since we were pregnant together! Stacie wanted a cute hat for Leah's 3rd birthday (which is coming up all too fast!)

Here's what I came up with! I'm going to get a charm of the #3 and string it onto the bow, and sew the bow shut so that it won't come off!

I got a new banner! And it's OH so cute!

Thanks to Heather and Lynsday. I LOVE it!

Gabriel's Birthday Longies

These were bittersweet to knit and finish. These are the longies that my little man will wear at his first birthday party! I can not believe it's already been a year! it's flown by! This yarn was hand dyed by an amazing artist, TJTunraveled

Without further ado


Also the stocking at Cong-Fu went well! I sold 2 custom Hudson hat slots!

Finished Projects!

Kimmy & Bella's Jane Hats!

So, as you may, or may not know, I have two little boys. I have 4 sisters, 2 step brothers (but they're way older than me, so I NEVER, saw them). I didn't know how to do the whole boy, thing, but 3 years later, I'm hanging in there! I absolutely adore all things girlie, and pink, glittery, flowery, fairies...seriously. I'm a GIRLIE GIRL! These hats are just that! My friend Jenn has 2 little girls, Kimmy & Bella, and Kimmy loved the hat Bella got with her longies and wanted them to have matching! Voila!

{love} seriously.

This hat, I wish I had a little girl to put it on! It's going to be stocking at Cong-Fu on Wednesday the 4th. It's a super soft Cashmerino from Annie Amelia, and I duplicate stitched "Love" onto it! Seriously. I think I want one for me!
