My mom brought my niece, Bug, over last week because her momma (my sister S!) was super sick with the flu. Bug is six months old and cute as a button. She's also teething and drooly which necessitated a wardrobe change. Luckily, Auntie Jaime had the perfect outfit.
The Simple Ruffle-Butt Onesie!! It was a perfect fit! She agreed to work as a baby model for me, and as payment she got to keep the outfit, plus she got all the snuggles she could stand!
It makes me want to get my Knit-Picker out and make some more for her for Christmas!

My sister-in-law is getting married this weekend. I've been crocheting on a wrap based on THIS wrap, and it's darn near killed me. I'm, like 8 skeins in, and even though I've only got 2 more to go, I don't want to finish it. It was fun to begin with, but now it's so boooooooring!! I made mine in purple, and it's just so PURPLE. I mean, I dig purple, but it's just so MUCH purple... I needed a break.
So, I made a bag. I've been living on Pinterest lately (LOVE IT! It's online crochet pattern hoarding!) and I saw a pin for THIS photo tute from this cool Finnish site (aren't on Pinterest? HERE is the link to the site) and I HAD to make one. Like, right now. Because I missed COLOR!!!
It was really fast. I was able to make mine in one night, but I didn't line it, so I imagine that would have taken longer. I also made my straps a little different, because I wanted more support (since I didn't line it!)
It's going to be perfect to carry around my WIP wrap until I get it finished! LOL!
