Made with love for Tessa

For my new baby niece Tessa Bean O'Leary born to Michael and Sarah on August 6 2010.

The Squash Hat and Baby Janes in Blue Sky Yarns 50% alpaca 50% silk in Wisteria. Wooden buttons from the Rockville Centre button store.

On My Needles: Circles and Stripes Slip Scarf

One of three projects I'm working on...

in Malabrigo Yarn, Worsted-weight, 100% Merino in Damask Rose

The pattern specifies size US 10 needles and includes a chart to work-up the circles. I love size 10. I love charts. And I LOVE this yarn. So I bet this one will be finished first.

cra·vat  [kruh-VAT]
