2012 Thing a Week - Week 19 - North Roe Shawl

I knit up a shawl for my Grandmother for Mother's day. It's Colourmart cashmere, the same yarn I used for my Percy.

It turned out great!

2012 Thing a Week - Week 18 - Minnie's Birthday Outfit

So I got up the morning of Minnie's birthday party and decided to make her an outfit to wear. It's pretty similar to last year's outfit, but I used an embroidery hoop for the letter and just did a running stitch, which made it lots easier. I just did a double letter skirt and it turned out super cute.
Sadly, I didn't get a picture of her in it at her party. Leng was cooking, and I was running around, and she was only wearing it for an hour before she switched to her swim suit.

But here's her outfit on the counter!

Oh wait! She wore it again on her actual birthday, and we went to IKEA!
