Knit Update

A long overdue knit update:

Carey Cropped Sweater and Camelia, both by Stefanie Japel. I wish I looked better in these photos, but I like the way these sweaters were to knit, and I like the way they turned out.

I'm halfway through the Cozy V-Necked Pullover now, but of course, I won't be able to wear it for months. I also finished Amelia's colorful cardigan, but I want to block it and put the buttons on it. Let's hope she doesn't grow out of it before she gets to wear it.

This morning, I noticed Amelia had put a gold-star necklace on her cup lid. I touched it, and she said, "Don't touch it, Mommy, it's my imagination."
