It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens
Happy Spring everyone! Our spring looks a lot like winter here just more brown and muckish. We got a fresh layer of snow last night but it has almost completely melted. Now only four more feet to go!
I made these carrots for the kids Equinox baskets. They are posed with Sour Cream, my youngest sons lovey that he's had forever. I used this pattern but modified it some. The pattern calls for increases until you reach 32 stitches around but I stopped at 20 stitches and then kept going until I reached the length that I wanted. I believe the smallest carrot is 12 stitches around. I only printed out the first page of the pattern by mistake therefore I'm not sure how they did the green tops so I just improvised mine. They are stuffed with poly-fil only since my kids are too old for rattles as called for in the pattern; they're really too old for these in general but they don't mind indulging their mama every now and then.
I've been working on a new project that I am planning to unveil next week. I'm really excited about it and can't wait to share it with you so be sure to check back on Monday for the grand opening :)
I hope you all have a lovely weekend and Easter!
