I'm no Windybrook

I have a friend known as Windybrook Spinner - she calls herself this because she nicknamed her home Windybrook (cute - I need a cottage name for my house! Nothing is coming to mind outside of Dusty Acre or Construction Central...surely there's something cuter than that for our little ramshakle hut o' love?) and because she's a spinner of wool into yarn. She's awesome, and I admire her knitting from afar. I have no hopes or aspirations to rise to her standard, but I did knit a sweater for Bitty. It only took me four months. That's a long time, by the way. But I'm pretty pleased that I finished an item of clothing that actually fits my daughter. It has plenty of flaws, but if you kind of squint you can't see them too well. If you want to be really impressed, check out my friend's website. Woah. Anyway, I LOVE knitting, as long as I'm not in the middle of fixing one of my frequent mistakes. I'm now going to start a sweater vest for Stomper...it should be done by next Christmas!

Yea Rachel! Congratulations! It looks beautiful and you did a wonderful job. I know you think it has tons of flaws, but it doesn't. I saw it and know. Plus, you made it with love, so that makes it perfect anyway. My stuff always has flaws too by the way. Really. No one notices. The point is: Are you having fun? Are you learning something? Is it worth your time? I think so, of course, since I'm a bit obsessed, even when I'm pulling my hair out about it. Thanks for including me in your projects. I really do love to help when I can. Okay. This is a book. Sorry. It is a very cute sweater and it fits Bittie really well. Way to go. Thanks for all the compliments. It's a real blessing having such a kind and generous friend.

You are so amazing and quite the impressive knit-ster. LOVE it! It's amazing how much she has grown since I saw little "Bitty" at the baby shower. How time flies.
Happy New Year from the Davis'
