Friday night, I finished a sweater for The Preemie Project. I used the Twist and Turns pattern with Softee Baby yarn. I still need to choose the buttons. Here in The Blueberry Capitol of the World, we have many shopping options - Wal-Mart, and ummm, oh yeah, Wal-Mart. I really wanted some lavendar buttons, but they only had one style of pink, and the little white hearts. The white heart buttons are pretty because they have a little bit of a silver sheen to them. I cast on for the hat, and there is a pair of booties to be made as well.
Last weekend, I sewed the flannel linings into three funeral buntings, also for The Preemie Project. I added ribbons, and they are ready to go. The one in the middle is mint green with a pink and green polka dotted lining. I hope having these cuddly buntings for their sweet baby will bring some comfort to the families who will use them.
