Sweet Xmas Baby!

This is my cousin's baby girl Nikola in her new X-mas outfit that Aunt Margaret got her. The shoes are the best but not really visible in this shot. I just love this picture!

I have a story to go with this baby, my cousin actually has another child a 6 year old boy. When my cousin had him my grandmother wrote some boy and girl names on a piece of paper. Since then my grandmother passed away and this past summer my cousin had her second child and named her Nikola. A few weeks ago my Aunt came across that piece of paper that was buried between some old cards and letters. Are you ready?? The name Nikola was circled in red. Weird huh, i guess my grandmother knew back then that my cousin would have a girl and that would be her name. Needless to say everyone was pretty freaked out by this discovery.

Bag Swap!

My Knitting Group (Stitch n Bitch) had a bag swap on Saturday night. It was a cold and snowy night but that didn't stop us from having a great time. It was great, all the bags were fabulous.

This is the bag i made.

This is the bag i got.
I love my bag, I've been caring it since the swap, it's perfect! And it had all sorts of goodies in it, chocolates, cookie mix, soap, and xmas stirs, super cool.

The bag i made also came with extras, fingerless gloves and hat, which i designed to match the purse. It's hard to see in the picture but they look much cuter in real life.

Shalom Hat

I've been working on this hat to go with my Shalom Cardigan. It took a couple tries but here it is and i'm very happy with it. It fits perfectly!
