Sassy Sara modeling her Sparkle Shrug

Gave Sara her shrug tonight and she loved it. Much to my delight it wasn't that big on her!

It was funny though, b/c she was standing with me when I went into the trunk of my car to get it, and she goes "Is something in there for me?" and then gets this look on her face and says, "I remember you said you were going to make me a white sparkly dress." I corrected her and said "Not a dress, a little sweater..." and she nodded, as if to say "yes, that's right." Then I poked her little belly and said "You stinker! You ruined my surprise. I have it here to give you!"

So we went inside and I gave it to her, and she modeled it for me right away. Crappy cell pics because of course I forgot to bring my real camera. Oh well, this little tushie looks just as cute via cell pics. And just for the record, I did not ask her to pose for any of these, she just automatically strikes a pose when you ask to take her picture. I seem to recall another little girl...cough cough me cough cough...who used to do the same exact thing.

New Year's Eve Sparkle Shrug

For Sara. A very quick knit that ended up being too big in an attempt to not make it too small. Oh well, she'll grow. Made with LB Wool-Ease in white/iridescent (hard to see in pics) and size 8 needles. Used THIS cute and easy pattern, with some mods that I'll post later. I know Sara will like it but I wish it was going to fit her now.
