These dungarees for a premature baby were easy! My first pair I made straight by the pattern baby weight yarn keyplate 2. Next pair is key plate 4 and worsted weight. That should be big enough can't wait to see! Now I am excited.

Look who is doing lace!

This is a very small sample of the gull lace. I am working my way up to do my infinity scarf. If I do my math correct I can make the pine forest baby blanket on the machine.

Another striped bag

Using leftover comfort I am making a purple one I am putting the sp1 in between I did not have that last time. I want a red one for teshia and a aqua green one for myself this summer.

For Starters

The starcrossed cowl was a bust. Should have given it my full attention. I am subscribed to alexanderbond on youtube and while she was snowed in she did four videos I did some responses. I did the chunky two strand twist (the pic it is the left over) I also played in some makeup. It came out great! my hair did too. I am using a mix of shea butter and curl activator. The mixture is a bit clumpy but it does the job my hair is soft and moist all week! When I remake it I will use the curl activator in the bottle. That does not get clumpy. I am really enjoying my hair looking forward to july for my first press and curl! I did trim my hair too when I did my chunky two strand twists. My curls look so crisp.

Star crossed cowl

I am finally making this cowl I will post a pattern right after I finish. Same as the hat cast on 72 work in the round three cable repeats end with ribbing. I am not sure how prominent the cables will be with this yarn and I have to line it with I am thinking jersey knit because this yarn has 10% wool and itches my neck like noones business.

Not deep enough

I made this tam on the machine and you see it just sits on the top of my head. Don't mind the nappy hair I am on vacation. Took down the sew in because my scalp was itching too bad. Currently  I am deep conditioning my hair. Anyway I am proud of two things concerning this tam. I did a circular creation. My first and seam as you go. I but the ribbing on as I knit the hat ( knit the rib first). So it was not a complete waste.
