Where have I been? Busy!

I have been super busy with my knitting and teaching and just overall kid craziness the last few months. My babies are now 21 months and 3 and I am working harder to take care of them at this point than I was this time last year when I had a toddler and a just beginning to crawl infant. I have been doing a LOT of knitting, including some small shawls to give away to our grandmothers as Christmas gifts, and some sewing. Here's a photo round-up of what I've been up to lately:
Pattern is "Ishbel" by Isolda Teague and yarn is Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock Lightweight in "Goody Goody"

"Queen Anne's Lace" Pi shawl by MMario Yarn is Cascade Alpaca Lace  in "Posy"

Christmas Shawl #1 "Summer Mystery Shawl" by Wendy Knits Yarn is Kitchen Sink Dyeworks Merino Bamboo in "Robin"

Christmas shawl #2 "Traveling Woman" by Liz Abinante Yarn is Ella Rae Lace Merino in color  #121
Gift for my cousin's new baby. "Steps to Stranded Cardigan" by Looking Glass Knits Main yarn is Daily Fibers in pink, brown, and aqua. Contrast yarns are Lorna's Laces Shephard sock in "Aqua" and Knit Picks Stroll in "Carnation"

"One Day Beret" by Kirsten Kapur Yarn is Malabrigo Worsted in Mariposa
I have way more knitting that I could show you, but I don't want this post to be forever long. Here's some sewing:
Dress for my cousin's baby girl "Itty Bitty Baby Dress" from Made by Rae Fabric is from Hobby Lobby
Mommy and me skirts I made for Cupcake Katie and me. Pattern is by me, fabric is by Michael Miller Fabrics
Fourth of July pillowcase dress. Pattern by Whimsy Couture Fabric is leftovers from other projects.
Vintage pillowcase dress using the same pattern as the fourth of July dress. Vintage pillowcase was purchased on Etsy

Hopefully, it won't take me too long to post again :)
