On Christmas Day, this baby turned one year old! We spent the week before sick with the flu, so my dreams of finishing handknit sweaters ended quickly, but I did manage to finish this vest, inspired by my friend Kyce’s super cute baby vest.
Per her instructions, I cast on what seemed like the right amount of stitches, and made it up as I went along. Nerve-wracking, but it came out just fine, and it does my Mama heart good to see him bundled up. We were lucky to have my mom here with us for the holidays (sorry for getting you sick, mom!) and she put my sewing machine to work, getting started on a quilt top while she was here.
We were super delighted to get some snow – Ella got to make a jolly snowman. Snow is one of the best toys ever, I think, and it is so beautiful to see covering the world outside, reflecting the gentle winter light. Welcome to a new year, friends.
