Here are a few items I was able to finish prior to the deliver of Jonah as well as a few projects I was in the midst of working on…
The week before I was admitted into the hospital, I cut fabric for 4 more A-line dresses for 3-year olds. I was able to finish two and just have to put the finishing touches on the other two dresses. Here are photos of the 2 that are done.
The first dress is a gift for a friends daughter who turns 3 in November. I used the remaining fabric I had from making this dress for Hazel earlier in the summer. The second dress is for Hazel to wear next year. I used fabric from the Fresh Cut line and added some brown ric rack at the top.
I started another ruffled scarf when I was in the hospital. This one will be a gift for a friend whose birthday was in September.
I started this raglan baby sweater from Erika Knight’s Knitting for Two before I went into the hospital and continued to work on it while I was on hospital bed rest. I just added the buttons this morning. I made the same sweater in a smaller size for Hazel when she was in the NICU. For this one, I used the left over yarn I had from making the rolled edge cardigan. Jonah will be able to wear it when he is about 6-12 months old.
I’m not quite sure what knitting project I will start on next. I’m leaning towards doing another ruffled scarf as a way to start some holiday knitting.
