40 Days of Joy and Thanks – Days 9 &10

The past two days, I’ve been very thankful for craftiness. It’s even given me two days of joy! (That’s my lame attempt to make up for not posting yesterday.)

In truth, I’ve been super crafty lately. I think it’s the cooling weather; it means you can hold wool now without breaking a sweat.

In non knitting craftiness

A bow holder for Mar’s every growing bow collection. Bows which, by the way, she can say “bow” and pat her head when she wants one. She also knows her bows versus my barrettes and gets a great big laugh out of it when I put one of her bows in my hair.

Marion is also quickly outgrowing her baby towels, so in an effort to de-stash my fabric collection

A new baby towel!

One yard of terry and one yard of flannel

Equals a very snuggable baby towel.

In homage to one of our favorites from last year

The first of, I am sure, many momma made pumpkin hats

Although truthfully, this looks a bit more like a pumpkin colored apple

Still pretty cute though 🙂

Or maybe that’s just the model

A little something for momma!

Not quite a perfect fit

And the pièce de résistance, a mere five months in the making

Marion’s February Baby Sweater Dress

Based on the super popular February Baby Sweater pattern

In Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Knitter’s Almanac

I’m quite proud of this

And best of all, Marion seems to tolerate it 🙂
