Maybe it's the fall weather, but I've found my knitting groove again and I'm SO VERY HAPPY about it! There's something so relaxing about putting my feet up (for a few minutes) at the end of the night with a fire going and my knitting. I also admit that I enjoy wearing handknits and I REALLY love seeing my babies in something that I knit them. I love knowing the time and love that went into picking just the right the pattern and yarn for them as well as the love that goes into each stitch. It makes them so special to me. I have each and everything saved for them to put on their own littles if they choose.
My favorite finished knit in a LONG time was a dress (which ended up being more of a tunic) for Lucy. I adore the pattern and color. I wish I had finished it earlier so she would have been able to wear it a bit more. The first time she wore it to a family function she went crazy on berries and got berry juice all over it - I'm still trying to see if I can save it!
I'm sure you've seen the boot cuffs that are all over Pinterest. I've heard people say that you can make them out of sweater sleeves, but there are some CUTE patterns for knit cuffs too! This was my first pair, but most definitely not my last.
