I make pretty things.

For the demanding set...

Many (most? all?) of you have seen this news on Facebook, but for those who haven’t, here are the details.
Project: Jasper James Charles Stark
Pattern: My own
Gauge: 19.25″, 7lb 12oz
Started: Sometime in late May (I didn’t write it down)
Finished: Feb 15, about 10 in the morning

And now I have a model:

Peek at blankie by Aunt Joan.

Resting on Aunt Joan’s blankie. (Better picture of the actual blankie found here.)

Wearing Aunt Cheryl’s hat. (A thousand curses on my inability to properly photograph red.)



Wearing Mama’s hat. (No pic of the matching sweater yet, though he is wearing it today. It’s a little big.)


(Showing the tassle in this one, but the color is more accurate in the others.)
