My friend Liza is due in November, and since her baby shower was yesterday, I can finally post the adorable sweater I made for her.
I started with some random yarn I had lying around the house, and the Five Hour Baby Sweater pattern that has been adapted and transcribed by more people than you'd care to shake a stick at.
That was cute enough. But then I decided to go all wacky and embroider onto the sweater. With yarn and not embroidery floss, because this was on a whim.
So, I taught myself chain stitch, which is ridiculously simple, and winged a little sun and a llama, because Lliza lloves llamas. A llot.
When the llama was finished, I actually giggled out loud. Like, "Teeheeheeheeheeee!" The Husband was a little concerned, until I showed him and he had the same reaction. It looks a bit like a prehistoric cave llama, but I think it's awesome.
So now I'm working on a Super Secret Project for my sister-in-law, who is due in January. It is also adorable and I'll be sure to post it after her shower.
In other news, Vivian is done! And she is awesome! And I need to take pictures! When it is light out! So, you'll just have to wait a bit...
