a bunny bell!
I haven't been doing too many swaps lately, but I couldn't resist one on Ravelry, and I must show you what Darbyrose sent me. In addition to beautiful yarn, she sent me the book I've been dying to read, and the cutest bell ever -- a bunny bell! Thank you, Darbyrose!
I also promised to show you a f.o.
This is the "seamless baby kimono" I knitted for baby Narjis. I used heart-shaped buttons instead of the ties in the original pattern, and KnitPicks Shine Sport in Crocus. (Note the quotation marks around "seamless baby kimono." Narjis is not, as far as I know, a seamless baby.)(Edited: thanks, Carrie. Narjis is, indeed, seamless.)
A little bib is on its way, too. Knitting for babies is so satisfying! You get to knit little things that don't take forever to finish, and you get to imagine the little baby wearing the little things. It could become addictive.
I'm reading my pre-pub copy of The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry. Turn on your speakers when you visit the website. Then run out and get the book. It's amazing.
