Happy Spring!

ampersands.2

I hate when they fit perfectly. And almost stripe matchy-matchy perfect.

Ampersands

Actually, I only hate it when they aren't for me!

But I know mom will like them for Mother's Day! Oh well.

Pattern: Ampersand

Yarn: BMFA, Socks that Rock, mediumweight, coloway Freckles

Puddles

Puddles followed me out for the photo shoot. She loves when its windy!

"What?!"

Bailey

There was no way Bailey was getting off dad's lap to go outside!

Happy Mother's Day!
