More Gifts!

Our little L is getting bigger and at 23 weeks is keeping First Born up at night.

When I started to clear the attic I found a box of booties made by my Mom and my Aunt.
They were crocheted and knitted with love for my girls and I can't wait to see my grandbabies in them.

I finished the Autumn Leaves sweater for L. Made with Rowan Kid Classic yarn it is super soft and warm.

This great pattern by Nikki Van De Car can be found here for free.

Now that I'm 58 and retirement is days away I gifted myself something I've always wanted but never dreamed I would get. Not one but two Michael Kors bags.

This is part of his classic tote.

I love the lock and a key comes with it!

There's enough room for me to take knitting with me.

The second one is a satchel and was on sale so I just couldn't pass it up.

It's smaller than the tote but still tons of room.

I hope this is not the start of a bag frenzy!!!

The booties are so sweet, and so special.

Love the little sweater. And those bags are great. I could picture the tote with a lovely knitting project in it!

That leafy sweater came out so awesome!! Lena's pattern is still my fav, though:) I'm so going to steal that blue bag...and I'm shocked at how big I am...She's huge in there.

That second bag is especially pretty! And I love the idea of handmade items for babies get passed down through the generations, such a sweet idea :)

You deserve to gift yourself. Love those bags and being a bag addict is really ok. :-)
I also love the booties that you found that were made by your mom and aunt, and now the baby will be wearing something that your mom and aunt made. Very special.
Only a few weeks now before you retire. Congrats, you worked so hard for so many years, you deserve a lovely retirement.

Bless you!!!!
