Not Another ...

... Snow Day. Are you kidding me? I think we are up to 9 days to make up at the end of the year. At this rate our kids will be going to school til the middle of July. I have to admit though, that I love seeing the snow. It makes the yard look so pretty by covering up all the weeds and junk with a pure white layer of fluffy stuff! And the kids really enjoyed (probably their last) romping in the snow with their friends.

I sewed the seams on the boys burial outfit this morning and also took a picture.
Yarn: Bernat Softee Baby
Needles: 3.5mm and 3.75mm (US 4 and 5)
Pattern: Boys Burial Outfit by me

The blanket is also done in Bernat Softee Baby and size 4mm (US6) needles. It is about 14" square. I will post the pattern in a bit.

The seamless top down sweater is coming along nicely. I have put the sleeve stitches on holders and am now working on the body. Here's a picture of what I have finished so far.
Yarn: James C. Brett Marble in Denim
Needles: 3.5mm (US4)
Pattern: Seamless Yoked Sweater by Carole Barenys that used to be free on the internet. The 5 hour baby sweater is a similar pattern.
Size: Newborn

I hope to have it completed (and maybe a hat) at the retreat I am going to this weekend. Yippee --- no cooking or cleaning for me just lots of worshiping God, making new friends and catching up with old friends.
