to convert the Lelah top for my soon to be year old little girl. I picked a cheapo yarn, Caron Simply Soft in Light Orchard Peach, did a quick measurement of my kid's chest and cast on. A week and a half later, we have the Baby Lelah. If I was to do this again, I would shorten the straps a bit to pull the top up a little. On the whole this was a quick knit with cheap yarn, and relatively instant quick gratification was had. I really like the pattern, and think I will be making one for myself. The lace pattern at the bottom is very easy, and the results are nice. It's hard to get a shot of my kid standing still, thus the action shots. Also, my family room is a wreck. You all see what kids will do to a room with a couple of hours and a bunch of toys. In other news, my secret pal totally rocks and sent me a little gifty. She's feeding my passion for both purple and beads. Love the lace mohair from Karabella, and the beads. I especially like the little fishy beads she sent. They are already getting the creative juices moving. I also got my first set of stitch markers from the stitch marker swap. I love them. They are a bit longer and heavier than the ones I make myself, but the colors are beautiful, and the style is lovely. It's fun to see what others do with the same concept.
