I am going to be a grandmother! 

I have been bursting with happiness for the past three weeks! My middle daughter is pregnant with her first child, my first grandbaby! We are so excited! She had her first appointment and ultrasound last week and everything looks good! So now I am allowed to shout it from the rooftop!

The only baby things I have ever made were a pair of socks, a hat and blanket. 

These were made last year.

Of course, after I was told the good news, I began searching for baby items to make! Here is my first crocheted baby sweater.

I  followed a YouTube video and used left over yarns.  (Red heart and Sweet Roll) It was meant to be a practice run, but turned out very nice and was so simple to make.

I then bought Top This by DMC yarn. I normally like to loom knit hats, but I got out of my comfort zone and tried knitting on circular needles. I am now obessed with them!

I have made three other baby hats, but decided to wait on making other projects until we learn if the baby is a girl or boy. (Ten more weeks) 

My Etsy shop is back open! I decided to keep it simple this time and not go overboard like I usually do! I plan to sell soaps only this time. I may sell my crocheted and knitted items, I haven’t decided yet. I still make bath bombs, but by family and friend requests only. 

Happy Monday!
