a little bragging is to be expected, right?

I have had this rayon yarn for years, and have started several projects, first a strappy little tank for me (which I abandoned because I gained some weight and decided it wouldn't look good on me. Then I started a dress for Nina but had to modify the pattern and didn't write down what I had done and forgot after putting it down for a while. Then as soon as I started this pattern, I worked on it nearly nonstop until it was done.

She put it on immediately and has worn it several times since. Good thing because it's super frustrating when you make something for a kid and they won't wear it!

Cute! I hope someday to be able to make such a big project. I finished up my 2nd scarf yesterday though and am about 70% done with my first pair of longies for Jude. I will be so proud when I finally get them done!
