This moment - A little one turns 2!

{this moment} – A Friday ritual from Soule Mama.  A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week.  A simple, special, extraordinary moment.  A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.  If you’re inspired to do the same, leave a link to your “moment” in the comments for all to find and see.


Last night we celebrated with my family at their weekly trivia night.  We had a great time and daddy even surprised us by leaving work early and joining us!  We are holding off on her birthday party until Easter Sunday because my dad, who lives in Panama, and my sister and her family, who live in California are all coming to town next week!  We wanted to wait to celebrate with them!  I can't wait to celebrate this girl some more!  My mini me.


Happy Friday!

Masterpiece: CGR's Wonderful Wallaby


Sometimes a project just is so addictive that it is off the needles as soon as it's been cast on...or at least that's how it feels...



Project details
Ravelry Project link
Pattern: Wonderful Wallaby by Carol A. Anderson
Yarn: Knit Picks Swish Worsted in Carnation
Cast on: March 1st, 2015
Finished: March 13th, 2015
Notes: I was wearing my Corona pullover the other day and Carmen quickly asked if I would make her a matching one.  I of course said yes since I already had the yarn to make her this sweater!  She had helped me pick it out back in November but I got distracted by other projects and never started it.  So, March 1st came...super close to FL summer and the need for sweaters quickly fading..and I cast this on.

The pattern is pretty well written and comes in a little booklet, which I bought from Paradisefibers.net.  The size range is amazing...2T-2XL adult!  I measured the girls and since Carmen is pretty petite, I opted to make her the 4T even though she is already 4 and she will still have room to grow in it.  I followed the pattern pretty closely, however, I added length to all measurements.

I did pick up for the pouch before it said to.  Jasmin from the Knitmoregirls podcast had recommended to do this as she said it would make it easier.  It did seem easy. 
I'm so happy with how it came out and most of all Carmen is very excited about her new hoodie!  She immediately put it on and wore it out in the FL heat!  It was 83 that day!  She is definitely knit worthy!  Now I'm planning to make her sister a matching one that is purple.

I have already cast it on but have been a bit distracted with working on some other things.  Her sister just had to get involved in the picture taking though.  And I'm glad she did...because they are cute together.


Here's hoping I can finish up her sister's quickly! I'm only about an inch into the bottom ribbing...

Happy Knitting!!
