I didn’t finish it, but I did get it finished

Okay so I have been working on this project for almost a year… the shame!
Jacket-10
This is from the lot of vintage patterns I scored from a family friend. It is so darling and I had the pieces knit up, and the thing seamed even for oh, a half a year or more. But the crochet, oh crochet, how you vex me! It had crochet edging all the way around.
Jacket-6
I finally figured out that I wasn't going to be able to get good enough at crochet in time for me to finish this to my liking to fit little Tutu. So my friend did it for me and it turned out so awesome!
Jacket-7
Vintage buttons from one of the only sales I went to last year (I am going to do better this year).
Jacket-2
Sparkly Pants wore it today and spit up all over it. My mom and I managed to mop most of it up so I could take some photos. I should have taken the photos before, but you know, a finished knit you have to wear it!
Jacket-1
Because they make everyone so happy!

    i cannot crochet either, but my mom bought a pattern for these little crocheted monsters (similar to what was made at your baby shower)…i might need to try learning again. they are cute!

  7. omg that sweater is darling – and the baby , well – we know she is the cutest! What a feat though, well worth all of your efforts!:)

  8. You never cease to amaze me. How you find the time I will never know! She looks so cute in it!

  9. The pattern is knit in such a way it doesn’t look like knitting. Tuesday be proud you have a momma who can go beyond the knit, knit, knit…. I’m placing my bet on you making your first stitch at 5. πŸ˜‰

  10. This is amazing, I love, love, love it.
    Havde I ever mentioned how incredibly jealous I am of your knitting skills? I love every single thing you knit. *sigh*
