State of the Traveling Woman

I started another Traveling Woman in August--and it is still not done. I was dithering for a while about ripping back, I knew I didn't have enough yarn. Yesterday I finally found the time to do it--in the car while the baby was sleeping.

Here is what it looks like over the steering wheel.


I think these snapdragons know their time is short. They are giving a lovely end of the year display.

Scenes from the Fair

No knitting content today--I didn't even take any photos from the ribbon winning fiber crafts. Just some sights from the local fair a few weeks ago.

How long has it been?

Sorry it has been so long since I have posted. Time just slips away. Any every spare second I spend doing things that should have been done already--or sleeping. I should be sleeping right now--but I'm not.

My little bean is now 6 months old! Hard to believe. There are a few projects that I never got to blog about before he arrived.

I made 4 diaper covers, to be used by my friend, the photographer, for her sittings with newborns and infants. We went in at 4 weeks and had family photos--the baby wore the hats I made and the diaper covers--very cute.

If I can ever find the notes, I really need to post the mods that I made. I found the smallest size too large for a newborn--so I reworked it so it would be smaller.

Sorry about the poor quality shots. Some of them were taken with the computer's webcam. I never took any with the regular camera--and now they are gone, so that is all I've got.

The little pink one was completed hours before I went into labor.
And a good thing too--I didn't pick up the knitting needles again until August. I've been slowly working on another Traveling Women--but I'll save that for another post.
