Hot, hot, hot!

Summer has arrived here in the desert along with triple digit temps. Bob as well as the "girls" in our 55+ community pool keep telling me I need to wear a hat so I won't get heat stroke. I know I have extremely short hair, but it's thick so wearing a hat makes my head HOT! I like hats, really I do. Hats in the winter are fine. I want to wear one then, but in the summer, not so much. Well, today I broke down and bought a hat to wear in the pool (other than being in the pool, I'm not out in the sun - too hot). I bought a straw cowboy (girl?) hat. We'll see how it works out. We're going to the pool this afternoon. :)

Paper Doll Baby Sleep Sack

I finally got around to typing out the pattern for my Paper Doll Baby Sleep Sack, or as my husband calls it, "a bag to stuff a baby in". :-)

The pattern is for sale here:  The buttoned opening at the bottom makes for easier diaper changing.

Flowers & Ruffles

Flowers & Ruffles is the name of my latest baby sweater design. This one is a pullover with a ruffle around the front placket and knit with Bernat Baby Jacquards Florals. I just love the way this yarn pools - reminds me of flowers in a Monet painting. I knit the samples in 2 different colorways, one called Rosebud and one called Orange Blossom Special. I love both colorways.
