Peanut had her baptism last Sunday. She was so sweet and quiet, only a little bit of fussing with the water, and settled right down once it was finished. She was absolutely adorable in her gown (I’ll post pics of it as soon as I get some good shots) and generally a doll. Since I *ahem* don’t quite fit most of my nicer clothes yet (that is, those that aren’t very stretchy) I had to make myself a skirt to wear, and since a new skirt practically demands a new shrug, I had to knit a shrug as well! I’ve been rather enamoured of Ysolda’s Cloud Bolero (here’s a linky for those who Ravel) for quite some time, and thought that, knit in cotton, it would be just the ticket.
Pattern: Ysolda Teague’s Cloud Bolero
Yarn: Luna by Cascade in Red
Size: Medium (must now accomodate ye olde nursing boobs!)
Mods: I added short sleeves, rather than doing the cap as called for, and added one non-lace four-row repeat before binding off the body.
