In an odd coincidence, both my former and current sisters-in-law had babies on the same day. May 16th was new-cousin-palooza for my boys! We had already brought baby Sam some goodies when we went to his shower in Dallas last month, so that left Miss Manning Mae to be celebrated. In her honor, I knit a wee baby sun dress for her to wear to her first tea party. Since her mom Kristin was a one-time Austin Craft Mafia member, the yarn used was of course, Craft in color, Mafiosa. As of today, the pattern for the “Mae Day” dress is available for downloadable purchase! I hope your little lass enjoys donning her own version as much as I did designing this one!
When I came across this Knitting Needle Patent greeting card by @patentpress , I couldn’t resist selecting it as one of the items for the YarnYAY! September box! (Link in @vickiehowell bio or got to YarnYAY.com)
What looks like part circular knitting needle, part Tunisian crochet hook is illustrated as the patent drawing for flexible knitting needles. This greeting card memorializes the creation of tools that we stitchers can now, not do without!...
Nineteen years into this knitting career, it’s crazy-pants that I’ve never had Learn to Knit or Learn to Crochet kits before. So, I finally made it happen. If you know someone, or ARE someone that wants to learn — while also making something wearable— check out our new hats and scarves kits in the YarnYAY! Shop!
