Back on the Doilies!

I took a break from doilies for a while...I think it was around the time I found out I was expecting Grace. I started knitting baby clothes instead. Maybe because the weather's getting hot, I haven't felt like knitting clothes, and am heading back to doilies. I put the booties on hold for a while too, because no one's gonna put booties on their kid in the heat of a Korean summer.

My first knitted doily, Flacon. This went well. I shied away from knitted doilies because they're hard to start, but I'm going to give them another chance. Another problem with them is that if you make a mistake, you might want to kill yourself since it's so hard to go back and correct something. With crocheted doilies going back to correct something is just a minor inconvenience. My goal is to someday knit this doily, but I'm going to work up to it.
A very easy crocheted doily, Cutie Pie Doily:
I also made a couple of toys for gifts. I gave the little bunny to Eva.
Grace was wild tonight. Not cranky, just wild. She didn't go to sleep until 10:30, even though I did the bathtime routine at 5:30 when she was tired. At 10:00 p.m. she was wanting to practice rolling over (today she went from her stomach to her back by herself) and was laughing and clawing at my face. Things could be worse. I'm so proud of myself for not freaking and just going with it...

We love the bunny! Even Curt said to be sure to tell you how cool he thought it was. The snake is great as well.

I am thinking of doing a very simple dress project. I just ordered an e-pattern. We could do it as an EMCK event and break it into stages like Dongdaemun fabric shopping and then cut and sew. I think Jessica has a sewing machine as well.
