First Tova Top

Here is my first Tova top. I used a thin brown voile. I really like how it turned out. I had some difficulty putting the placket to the front of the blouse and experienced some puckering at the corners. Not sure why it happened, maybe I put the drill hole in the wrong place. I made mine in a medium and it fits perfect, except the cuffs are slightly tight. I can't wait to make my next one:)
Thanks for looking! Xo~Amanda

Bright Stripes Blanket Finished

I finally finished Taj's knitted blanket, it took 10 months to complete:)  I am so happy with how it turned out.  The pattern is from the book More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson. I used Malabrigo Rios yarn for the blanket.  This yarn is incredibly soft.  My stripes are Ravelry Red, Glazed Carrot, Sunset and Lettuce.  I used Natural for the main body of the blanket!  The finished size is 50''x 55'', and has an applied I-cord trim.  I can't wait to snuggle with my Tajie under it.

I also made two more pajama pants using Anna Maria Horner's Field Study fabric.  I love the feather print.  I am saving these for gifts and have two more pairs cut out and just waiting to be sewn together.

Thanks for looking!
