Happy Easter

We were traveling for Easter, so I couldn’t post. It was a lovely weekend, and full of “firsts” for the baby. The day of Easter was a little rough from a combination of teething, stranger anxiety, family she hasn’t seen in a month, and sleep deprivation. But we all pulled through.

I am working on a crib teething guard tutorial that I hope to post tomorrow or Wednesday. It’s pretty exciting for me because I am a decidedly novice sewer.

(Sweater pattern is Summer Days by Elena Nodel.)

I think she likes it! The sweater is a little snug in the body and sleeves, but it will do since she’ll be wearing it in less than a week. I’m so pleased with the final product that I’m thinking about getting more yarn to make it in a larger size. The petals of the daisy buttons are a little fiddly and catch on the buttonholes. But they’re so cute that I don’t mind.

I just finished knitting Daisy’s Easter sweater, and I am thrilled with how it turned out. It’s exactly what I wanted. The pattern is Summer Days by Elena Nodel. It’s knitted in MillaMia Naturally Soft Merino, which is my idea of a perfect yarn – soft, well-wearing, perfect stitch definition, beautiful colors. The only problem is that it’s not cheap. Daisy is already in bed, so I don’t have any pictures of her modeling her new sweater yet – those will come tomorrow and on Easter.
