Beth Ann's Christmas scarf

I made a skinny scarf for Beth Ann for Christmas out of a Donegal Tweed ball that I received in a yarn swap. It can also be worn as a belt. I think it turned out really cute. I hope she likes it!

maternity clothes

I made my first maternity shirt last night. I've had this material for years. I love it, but I've never found the right thing to make with it. I ended up making this shirt a size too big. I held the pattern up to me, and it looked like it was going to be too small, so I made it a size too big. Oops. I suppose the extra room will be useful in a few months though, so that's okay.

I finished a skirt today. The design was all mine, and I'm kind of pleased with it. I'll make some adjustments the next time I make one. It turned out straighter than I wanted. I meant to make it a bit more of an A-line, but I still like it.
