In Threes: a Baby Cardigan~ 2012

This sweater was knit for Anna Rosemary~
Pattern is In Threes: a Baby Cardigan by Kelly Herdrich. (Ravelry Link)

Made from Miss Babs Yowza in Stillness.
Yowza is still my favorite, favorite yarn. 
Gauge on a size 7 was 5 st/in. and 7.25 rows/in.
 Buttons are old, from my gram's button stash.


    I modified the pattern by adding long sleeves with a K1P1 cuff.

Size is 0-6 months... 
Here is a view of the back~
And the back of the yoke...

Very sweet. 
Stay tuned for photos of Anna Rosemary (who is a mere 2 weeks old!) modeling the sweater.

Reenie's Pinker than Pink Lamp Remake

I love pink.
On a recent trip to Goodwill, I found some awesome lamps.
Very retro-tacky, but with a great shape. 
And I LOVE the round, grey, textured section in the center.

Disassembled to paint...

Two coats and a few days to cure...

(see the chicken in the background?)

They add that extra POP of pink that I was looking for...

Since it's a dark, rainy afternoon, I am heading to this exact spot to read.
