WiP- Camilla Baby Blanket

It’s been just about a month since I uploaded a blog post. Whoops. I’ve been crafting away on little projects and finishing up a baby sleep sack (FO post to come) while waiting for the Big Day.  The Anatomy Scan. Guess what?  It’s a GIRL!  Again. :P  That means come October, we’ll have three of those adorable, sugar and spice- filled munchkins in one house.  

Once the big news was revealed on that little screen in the doctor’s office, I went yarn shopping. Of course. Webs was having a sale and I picked up 4 skeins of Rowan Pure Wool in a beautiful lilac color (Rowan calls it “Splash”).


“Camilla” Baby Blanket

The color isn’t entirely accurate in the photo. It’s not quite so in-your-face purple. I promise some better shots in the FO post that will hopefully be in the near future. Blankets aren’t exactly a quick knit. Even with worsted weight and size 10 needles.

Bad Blogger

I used to be so good about posting regularly and keeping you updated on my projects… 

I’ve made all kinds of things since my last update. My little Stitched by Sara shop has had quite a few orders (both crochet and fabric related) and I even completed an adult sized sweater.  

My biggest WiP at the moment is this:

That’s Baby #3.  And boy did I forget how hard making a baby is!  I suspect the fact that I’m also caring for a 35 month old and 17 month old has something to do with it. Oh the exhaustion!  And let’s not even go into the 24/7 nausea.  Oy. 

My new sweater!  The pattern is “Wyeth” on Ravelry. It’s fantastic. I really do need to get some full length shots of it. 

And here’s one of my recent Stitched by Sara orders.  My customer was thrilled, so mission accomplished!

And this is a super cheerful little dress-in-progress for my oldest girl. It’s called “Maxi Top/ Dress” on Ravelry and it’s a fun, free knit. I’m toying with the idea of adding some puffy short sleeves to it. If I ever get out of this morning sickness funk that I’m in. I’ve barely done any crafting since it came along. 

The best way to keep up with my crafting?  Follow me on Instagram @stitchedbysara. I’m MUCH more active on there. This poor blog is quite neglected.

Not a Bad Place to Knit


The start of a cardi for Ell' in the always delicious Malabrigo Rios.

Knitting in a rocking chair on the porch of our Smoky Mountain cabin while the rain falls.  Got about 3 stitches done before Ella woke up from her super short nap.  Ah well.  It was tranquil while it lasted.  Here’s hoping for a week of little, happy, peaceful moments with my loves.

“REJOICE evermore.  PRAY without ceasing.  In everything give THANKS.”

I pulled some beads and an elastic strap out of my crafting stuff to make an impromptu (1 minute) bracelet. A little reminder to keep my attitude and focus where it should be, stop the pity parties, and keep the grumpies away.

Because being a stay-at-home mommy is rarely easy.  :)

A ridiculous name for an awesome tasting cookie!

I’m in full party planning mode for Ella Gail’s first birthday.  It’s not until October, but today I baked and froze these delicious little guys:

We went to Disney World. It took about half the week before I figured out how to juggle carting the Little Ones around and taking pictures. In the end, I got quite a lot of shots. In no particular order, here’s the first installment of Photo Friday: Walt Disney World Edition.
