I'm a Slacker

Sorry I'm so slack. It's teething days here at la casa del Sebastian. But since you've been so good I have some pictures of one last Christmas present for you. This was a hat I made for our niece (18 months old). The name of it is Frivol hat, I've linked it below and in the sidebar.

Some progress pics...

It looked really cute on her, but I didn't manage to get a pic of her wearing it. The pattern is Frivol Hat.

I also made a black and blue hat for my dad, at my mom's recommendation. He was just like "oh, thanks" until Mama said "she MADE that." He thought I bought it.

I also started a cotton baby sweater the day we left for Christmas. I'm completely finished with it but I want to wash it once before I get the pic. Here's what it looked like on the blocking board.

P.S. - Is it completely obvious that I've never blocked anything before and didn't really have a clue??

With the dry, unblocked sleeves beside it.

I used exactly one ball of this cotton denim stuff. Notice how much was left.

Now that I have Jade Dragon hanging out, this blog will get updated a little more often! Thanks Jade!

I also use one of those sewing boards for my blocking board. It works just as good as those fancy, schmancy blocking boards.

although, I'd kill to have a fancy schmancy board ;)
