In my grubby little hands...
I have the most delightful book...
Itty Bitty Nursery by Susan B. Anderson
I know I have said this before, but my brush with fame never gets old for me, Susie, the author, actually had a hand in teaching me to knit. I took a beginner class in her adorable shop. The shop closed some time back and then while wandering in another great LYS, I saw her last book and made sure to get to the book signing - where I worked on my Cosmopolitan Yarntini Jaywalkers - this is a full-circle story for me - like I said, I can't tell it enough. Anyways, I saw Susie and posted about the book signing, the rest is history. I have been lucky enough to be in touch with her, commenting back and forth and even a meet up earlier this year where I got to see the pre-fab pages of this new book. And then yesterday, I get this one in the mail from none other than Susie - yay!! Such an unexpected treat to be gifted something so special! Thank you! And again, blogland rocks!
The book is even more spectacular bound up and in my grubby little mitts. I wanted to post a couple of projects that made me sigh...
Grumpy Old Bear
Don't you just love this guy, he makes me smile. I may need to knit him up to be my tangible "happy place" - he is so wonderful, albeit a grumpy little charmer.
Circles Stroller jacket and mittens
This darling jacket makes my womb ache for a baby. Okay, I can assure you I am having no more babies, but oh, could I squeeze my 2-year-old into this? Meanwhile, I want to hug this baby, mmm...edible.
Cupcake Baby Set
I think I could make one of these to fit my sweetie's noggin. Anything cupcake is just somehow better. I want to pinch those little cheeks.
Susie, you have done it again. I just wanted to give a teeny tiny peek into Itty Bitty Nursery, there are so many adorable things. If you have a baby to knit for, it's a must have (and I don't say that just because I have it, seriously, it's a great reference for so many sweet things) - I pray for many little ones in my path - not just because they smell so good and you can love them right up - my hands
