It's the I Spy quilt I made for her. It was a special present for her, and the train quilt is for her brother, Zachary, who is due to arrive any time now, which is why we're in Wisconsin. She knew who we were, thanks to Skype.
We've been doing things with her. Daphne is such an angel, complete with halo!

Aloha All -
I'm not much of an immersion dyer, rather a handpainter, but Elaine's post this past week about immersion dyeing inspired me to try it again. Plus I just got in some new dyes and mordant so off to the stove top I went.
First, I pulled out 4 oz of 64 ct merino wool and split it into 2-2oz pieces. Then took out…Continue

I finally got the buttons on the BSJ for Baby Stuart, the one due in June:
This BSJ is identical to the one I made for Zachary except for the color way, which is probably why it took so long. Also, I wasn't under as much pressure to finish it. There has also been some progress on the diaper bag for the same baby:
I was just over on the rabbit hole aka Ravelry looking for yarn suggestions for chemo caps. You'll be happy to know that KnitPicks made the cut! They had KP Comfy, Shine/Shine Sport, and the newest yarn, Brava on their list. They of course also mentioned 100% cotton yarns like the Simply Cotton. Basically anything machine washable and dryable that feels very, very, very soft. Absorbency is a plus! Softness is also key for knitting preemie caps. Stay tuned for more of Purlgirl's…Continue
