Summer nears an end. Tulip top almost done.
Thanks to Elann, I'm whippin' up a guilt-free summer top for roughly $12. I bought the Elann brand Sonata (100% mercerized cotton) for only $1.98 a 115 yard ball. Someday soon, it will be another version of Lisa Shobhana Mason's fabulous Tulip pattern. I have had trouble in the past making sweaters for myself that fit really well. Which is why I have completed hundreds of baby sweaters, hats, scarves, toys and mittens for my entire family, but finished few beautiful things to indulge myself. My hope is that this little top flatters my current (post baby#2, breastfeeding) figure.

Flatters = features big boobs, draws eye away from lack of waist.

This is one of about 5 projects I have currently on needles...

I also recently learned that another friend who i ADORE is pregnant. Joyous news, and my mind swims with irresistible ideas - but this makes 3 of my dearest friends and a cousin simultaneously growing a little baby. holy cow. Luckily, sewing is quick and i have big plans. The bigger my plans the better. I will never have the time to accomplish them all, but if i plan big, something always gets done. I want to make wide-legged, striped corduroy baby trousers. among other things...

Welcome to blogland. I think your Tulip will be done before mine.
 
Welcome to blogland. Tulip looks great, I love the color.
 
Welcome to blogland. I love the idea of wide-legged striped trousers for babies!
 
Molly: Congrats on your blog. I'm with you completely on that time thing. When will there be enough? Love the color of your Tulip. I've been trying to finish two summer tops ALL summer! Here's my blog address but wait to look at it until tomorrow. I'm finally posting after a long summer hiatus.

Hi Molly welcome back. I am new to abqsnb. However I live in las vegas so probably wont make it to too many meetings. But hope to someday. The tulip is pretty love the color.
 
Ramona -
You inspired me to make Tulip in the first place. I thought yours might be finished by now. I will bring mine to S&B tomorrow. Thanks for the pattern idea! I'm hoping I'll like the results...
 
Thank you to everyone for visiting me. It is so nice to have visitors!
I have really been enjoying your blogs in the past few days too. This is so much fun. A little something just for mommy.
 
I rue the day my first friend got pregnant... (not really) because I knit her something. Then another friend got pregs and so I had to make something for her and so on and so on...

I swear that I passed 2 years knitting baby stuff. I finally called it quits after my hubs' cousins' wife had twins. I just couldn't keep up with them all...
