What I’ve been up to

March 6, 2013 Amber

Okay, first off I wanna say… I got ENGAGED! So freaking excited and happy 🙂


Here is my gorgeous ring.  It has a black diamond in the centre with white diamonds around it.  I love it 🙂

Okay, now on to the crafting…

Baby Ms baby shower is a month away.  I have most of the decorations and gifts bought and made.  I have been so busy the past month it isn’t funny.  I feel like my head is spinning lol.

This sweater I made using the BICO pattern.  I used WW and a 6mm or 6.5mm hook.  It is a size 6mo but I made the sleeves long so they can be unrolled as baby grows.


My friend loves zebra and I saw a picture of a baby hat that was pink and it had a row of white and a row of black around the edge.  While it isn’t zebra print, it does remind me of it so that’s what I did.  I just need big black buttons and it is done.

A couple of my other friends are also pregnant… due within the same 2 weeks actually lol.  I decided to make each a sweater to fit for next christmas.

This sweater is the same, just different colours and has a paw print.


For the next sweater I found this gorgeous buttery yellow coloured yarn.  It is sooo soft!  If you have never tried Loops and Threads Impeccable go and grab a ball.  Anyway, so I saw the yellow and thought a light pink would look pretty so I did the trim in white and the appliques in pink.  I think Baby A is going to look so sweet in this.


And I made a little hat and a pair of uggs to go, with hearts of course.



I also made Baby A a starghan.

It came out 53″ from point to point across.

I still have more than half a ball of each colour left so I decided to make a few other things since I love the colours and the softness of this yarn.

This is again for Baby A.


I found this pattern for a cute little pinafore ages ago and have been dying to give it a go.


This pattern is so easy and fast.  I made the whole set in just a couple of hours.  This will fit a 6mo, but obv it could probably fit a little longer or even sooner.


This is the pattern for the bonnet.  I changed it to a shell stitch after doing a few of the DC and SC rows.  I also ran out of the cute ribbon I had so I just used white.

Because this is a summer dress ugg booties just didn’t seem right, so I made a pair of mary janes



Here is Baby Ms set.

I have also been getting more orders for animal hats.  Here are three kitty hats I made.




I love how these turn out, but man oh man they are a PAIN to attach!
