I Didn't Even Rip It

Alright, you may be wondering what the heck is going on, Well I had a day off today, I haven't had one in a while, so I was a little kooky. I asked my son to put on his shirt, and he said no. I proceeded with, well then I guess I will wear it. Holy cow would you believe it, I put it on.
This is a size 4T. It is a little short, and it made my chest size look small, and I didn't rip it. Well , my son went crazy, so I took it off. He finally put on his shirt, but didn't want his picture taken. This event made me laugh and I thought I would share it with you.

May be I should get more days off. My thought process on getting my son to put his shirt on was perfect. I didn't want to go through the whole Did you just tell me No? with my son. This made us both laugh and he put his shirt on without a No.

A Better look at The Baby Wrap

Alright here is a better look at the baby wrap. It is almost finished. I should be able to finish it at work tomorrow. I will have to see if I can borrow someones baby to take a live picture of the wrap in use. If not I will have Aidan my 4 year old hop in it really fast and take a quick shot.
I do like how it feels light, and airy. It gets really hot in Florida, so I think this will work awesome for moms down here, or anywhere that it is hot.

Well, I always go and check to see if my kids are asleep......... Well he is. I couldn't help but wonder how he got all these items around him!? I just had to take a picture. This will make a good picture in the future to show all his girlfriends I meet. :) Must keep knitting!!!!!!

My Baby Wrap Pattern

Here is a preview to my next pattern: It is a baby wrap!!!! You can wrap your baby up in this light organic cotton yarn from Bernat and be close to your pride and joy. I couldn't take a photo of the length of the wrap, it was to long. It is the same width the length of the wrap except the ends. Because I live in Florida, I wanted to make the stitches bigger so that air could get through. I am writing the pattern up as I go. If you click on the picture, you can see it better. The color in the photo is tricking my eyes. I have been working on this for quite some time. I can only work on this at work or if Barry is driving. I am making another woven bag similar to my other bag and I can only work on that one at home. So my knitting goes away at home. I will post a photo of my wrap when I am finished, then post a link to get the pattern. I think it would make an awesome baby gift. Moms love these types of baby carriers, slings, or wraps.
I can't believe I haven't posted the pictures of the beautiful yarn Cindy gave me. This ball here comes from Indiana. I love the rich deep colors. I can't wait to make a pair of socks with it.

This next ball is so soft and yummy. It comes from the beautiful country of Greece. This yarn is from Cindy as well. I think it is a 50 gram ball. I will need some help. I don't know what to make with it. I only have one ball and I want to make many different things with it. Can you suggest anything? What would you make if you could only make one item with this pretty yarn?

Thank you Cindy for the wonderful yarn. I love you and can't wait to see you!!!

Here is Krystin making her first sewing project. She needed little guidance. I told her what she needed to do, and she went to town. I was amazed. It was as if she has been sewing for awhile. We just finished cutting out the fabric pattern. Next on to the sewing machine.
She is a sewing prodigy. Her stitches were very straight for her first project. I was so very proud of my student. I didn't even have to do that much teaching. She just sewed away. I also made a pair of pj's. for my sister Cindy. The pj's were so comfy. I told Krystin I wanted pj's. When I came home from work the next day, She had pj's waiting for me. Awe. That was so sweet of her to do for me. I just love them. She made mine special. I have a pocket on the front, which by the way I didn't even tell her how to do. Cindy received her pants today. I wish she could be here so that we can wear them together, and get some popcorn and watch movies all night.

Thank you so much Krystin. I just love them. A couple of days before We made the pants I cut Krystin's hair. Did I mention I have a cosmetology license. I love the layers I cut into her hair.
This is the front:)

This is the back. Cutting these layers in her hair made me miss my long hair. So, I am growing it back out again.
I know I said I would post my knitting projects, But I haven't taken pictures of them yet. I am making one purse, one woven bag, and a baby sling. The baby sling is one that I've been wanting to design to for a while now, and I am doing so whenever I have a spare moment. Pictures soon to come I promise. I only had maybe two or three days off in July. I need a break!!!! I will be off work on Sunday, so I will take some nice pictures. Happy knitting everyone.
