Oh Baby Baby

Miss K's 6th grade teacher from last year had a baby in July and we have been meaning to visit her ever since. I made the pink sweater and hat for her baby shower. I realize it is pathetic that we haven't seen the baby until now but at last we got a chance to meet her today. She is absolutely gorgeous. Big blue eyes, a bit of blonde fuzz on her head and a smile that could melt a glacier. I took a break from knitting hats to make these adorable mary jane sock/shoes for her. I made the 6-12 month size but unfortunately they came out fairly large. Oh well, she can hopefully wear them when she is about 1 year old. I found these cute litte flower buttons at Joann's fabrics. Aren't they perfect? While we were visiting Mrs. R I saw this fabulous throw on her chair. Her MIL made it for her and I just loved it. The color combination was fantastic but I don't know how to crochet. Makes me want to learn! Does anyone know what stitch this is?

I spent a good part of the day driving the kids hither and yon and enjoying all the flowering trees letting me know that spring is in the air. I just had to stop and take a photo of this gorgeous pink tree which was surrounded by daffodils along the bottom. When I got home I finally planted the bulbs that have been sitting in my garage. Yes bulbs! They should have been planted in October but I never got around to it. They have started to grow in the bag so I figured I'll stick them in the ground and see what happens. I'll keep you posted!

Love the Mary Janes. It looks to me like straight double crochet. Very easy to learn and very quick to do - much faster than knitting -but it does take more yarn.
