Secret Ava Project 1:

Secret Ava Project 5:

Pattern Details
Pattern Source:
Teddy Bear from Simple Knits for Cherished Babies (I finished this one at 2 a.m. before the shower).

Maybe the next pictures I show you is of my new niece wearing, or next to one of these items. It was a joy to make them for her, and for Reese, but it will be even a bigger joy to be a part of her life.

Oyeme! No te antojes de mi revista, eh? :P

I love Selvedge. I am thinking about going crazy and ordering all the back issues. Please, stop me!

I find it at Borders and Barnes and Noble. Oh, and Springwater Fiber Workshop, where I actually bought all my issues.
