Blue ruby doll.

Here is a doll I made for me niece for her 1st birthday.

I enlarged the original pattern to make it a better size for a one-year-old (but I still worry the arms are too petite!).

It is using the same pattern as the Ruby Doll I made last year. Remember this doll?

I like the bigger pattern, and I think it is a great present for any little girl.

I like her in blue too!

Fair isle knitting.

I hope Mill does not mind me posting this picture - but I couldn't help myself - it is just too cute!

This is Olive Owl. Mill knitted him (her?) for her mum as a birthday present. Yes Mill is still living in the US (I miss her so much and it feels like forever she has been gone, when really it has only been 7 months [only?!?]!).

This was her first attempt at Fair Isle knitting - and I think she did an amazing job!

Oh if only I could knit half as well as this! Great job Mill!

Check out my new love.

Isn't she beautiful?!?

I am going to start making some clothes.

Near the end of January, Jamie and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary. It did feel kinda funny to have a 'first anniversary' considering we have been together since we were 14 (11 years and counting!). He suprised me with THE most amazing gift! A chair that I can sit in and quilt in the loungeroom!!! Isn't he amazing?!?

We went to the Imax for our anniversary and saw Avatar in 3D. I cried the whole way through the second half! It was the most amazing movie I have ever seen.

I totally agree with Lane - you MUST see it! James Cameron is sssoooo clever!!!
