Fun Finishes and Some Special Snuggles~

When I first saw this Feza Candy yarn, I knew it had to come home with me.  It worked up quickly on my second try with the store's cowl pattern.  The skein was just a few yards short for me to knit the pattern as written, so I frogged and changed it slightly by doing only 3 rows of knitting between the 4 rows of purling. Quick and fun! Next I'm going to try Feza Candy Deluxe which is all wool with a bit more yardage.......  


The next project was to seam and embellish these Ugg booties.  They will eventually go with a Fun Fur sweater for Little Lady that hasn't even been cast on.  Get crackin', Oma!


And who can resist a couple new photos of Stella who's now 3 weeks old?


Snuggling with Oma


and Opa. Aren't grand babies wonderful?

Such adorable pictures of little Stella! I saw some yarn similar to the Feza just the other day. I love the cowl. I may need to go back and give it a try. Enjoy your weekend.

Oh my, the photos of Stella are precious!

Your knits are great - I've never thought about adding trim to booties, but my goodness, your booties are cute.

Yes!! To grand babies but they are not in my future for a bit I think. She is a beautiful baby, and three weeks have flown by!!

Congrats on little Stella! My grans are about a 3 1/2 hr drive away so I don't get to see them nearly enough.

Your finishes are both lovely! Those Ugg booties are so adorable.
