Spring Rememberances

A year ago yesterday, my Mother died.  I was going to say, "we lost my Mother," but on reflection, we did not lose her.  She is present in my life every day.  I think of her with love and gratitude; have silent dialogues with her; show her what I am currently making, and know that she is present, just unseen.

Mother is with us for the rest of our lives.

Works In Progress

Works in progress include a Knit-Along on Ravelry with We Make Dolls; Meggie is the large doll with all the hair :-)  While waiting for clues, I worked up two more Ami's, Kismet and Kalliope.

Enjoy your day!

Simple Knit and Crochet for Simply Amis

Violette and Mignonette have some new clothing patterns to share with you!  A pattern for a simple top-down knit sweater can also be a dress, a turtleneck, a smock, or a nightgown; and overalls can also be a bibbed dress.

And Mignonette has a couple of wardrobe items of her own...

All of these patterns are knit or crocheted with fingering weight yarn; I used some stash sock yarns, Brown Sheep Naturespun fingering, and Knit Picks Palette.  The knits were done with size 3 (3.25mm) needles, and the crochet with size D hook.
