WIP Wednesday & March

The baby sweater I've been working on is mostly finished at this point. I'm waiting on the arrival of some vintage flower buttons I ordered on etsy to complete the sweater, but all the knitting is done. I think it turned out absolutely darling. I hope my cousin's new little baby will look adorable in it!

I think a matching knit cap is in order, don't you?

I'm doing a little spring craft with this yarn right now. Hopefully I can share it with you next week. Funny how it seemed so spring-y when I bought it, but in the snow, it seems awfully winter-y. It's Cascade's superwash merino, so squishy, soft and cuddly.

I'm also planning a project for Finn with this quartet of fabrics from the new Wheels line by Riley Blake. I'm thinking of a little traveling tote for our upcoming trip. Hopefully I'll be sharing this one soon too, if it works out well.

I had every intention of updating our nature table for spring yesterday. Something about the ringing in of March just wants to spread spring-y-ness everywhere. Unfortunately, it's hard to remove winter from your nature table when you're in the throws of a snowstorm.

So, I decided to embrace the winter for one last hurrah and make the kids these snowman (pumpkin-almond butter-spelt) pancakes for dinner.

They didn't mind the delay of spring. They're thankful for another chance to play in the snow and eat their snowman pancakes!


  1. I can't get over the snow you are getting! I love the baby sweater, so very sweet and the color is perfect! xo

  2. I love that fabric you have laid out! It is so fun together.

  3. The sweater is gorgeous, the pancakes look amazing, and that snow - oh my! We don't usually change out our nature table until the actual equinox (the exception being winter, which we tend to do Dec. 1, which feels right but then beautiful brief fall always seems to get short changed). I hope you thaw out soon, we're getting it as rain.

  4. Love the little sweater. I really wish I know how to knit!

  5. can't wait to see the bonnet and vintage buttons....darling!
