Yesterday after school we had our shower for our friend Cheryl who is having a little boy in a few weeks. We went to our local hang-out, Starry Night, and ate confections, drank yummy warm drinks, and had a good time.
Mine wasn’t the only handmade gift. Jess made a star blanket in the Raven’s colors.
(by the way, Jess also made the cutest crochet chick. Unfortunately, someone already snapped it up from her shop!) I wrapped up my presents really pretty-like!
Kacey recognized the yarn from her scarf I made. Everyone thought that the gifts (I also gave her some of the bibs and onesies I stenciled) were awesome, but the sweater was the best!
(ever had to explain to non-knitters how the yarn is made to do that? I think it is the funniest thing ever that people are confused by stripes!)

The sweater really WAS adorable … dangerous for me, all that baby stuff makes me want to have another one (I only feel that way when my own 2 little monsters aren’t around). I also dig the dinosaur t-shirt you made.
People are confused by stripes- that IS funny HA!
Adorable sweater! I love confusing non-knitters with stripes. I also dye some self-striping sock yarn. Try explaining that one to people 🙂
I just let them think I’m really really talented. If I have to put up with the annoying aspects of their ignorance (“What’s that–crochet?”), I figure I’m entitled to enjoy to unexpected perks!
