Knit Wit

I was told by my midwife to take it easy and just cruise on the couch. That's not an easy thing for me to do, so I've been knitting. I found all of the patterns on Ravelry, but since you have to have an account (totally free and well worth the few seconds that it takes to set on up) to view the site, I've linked to the original location of the patterns.

I've also finished Charlotte and Penelope's outfits for the open house that we're having in April. I wrote about the projects here and here a few months ago. The total cost of materials was probably around $15. The denim came from 2 clearance remnant bits, the lining was a donation from my mom (more than 15 years old), the lace was from a skirt I got in 8th grade (I'm almost 34, you do the math). I also used snaps, thread, elastic, hooks, and thrift store zippers, that I already had on hand.

McCall's 5791, a combination of views. The denim is not this dark in real life.

The jacket is View E from Simplicity 3513, and the skirt is McCall's 5461 (discontinued).


  1. Oh, that's a sweet model you've got! LOVE the hats. And it's good to start putting them in hats when they're little. ;)

  2. They are the cutest outfits I have ever seen, and they look so professional. Wish I knew some babies so I could make for them!

  3. That is the most adorable baby ever....I couldn't help smiling at that face with those gorgeous eyes.

  4. What a cutie! That little pixie made my day!
    Thank you for the adorable pics! May that little sweetie have a long, healthy and prosperous life!
