A little handmade gift for her first birthday, which was a wonderful day filled with close friends and family, sunshine and lots and lots of food and cake! Our home was bursting with some of our favorite people coming together to make our village, members both big and small. We feel fortunate to have had most of these folk witness some of the biggest milestones in our lives from our wedding, our moves and now our last baby. We are lucky.
During our spring break, a few weeks ago, we were on Bainbridge Island to spend some time with close friends and gave me the welcomed excuse to go into one of my favorite yarn shops, Churchmouse. There I saw this pattern and knew it would be a perfect knit for our birthday girl. I completed it in about 3 evenings, I used the recommended Rowan Revive which I would definitely use again because its a nice weight, didn’t split, is a silk cotton blend making it perfect for spring/summer.
