Hey everyone! I hope you are all enjoying this unusual March weather. We definitely are! My husband Kyle made a sandbox for our daughter Hailey last weekend. She has been playing in it almost everyday. I got a little sun myself since I um… fell asleep sitting outside. Anyway!
I made these tiny little butterflies for Hailey last week. There’s a green one missing right now. I’m sure Hailey has it hidden in her room somewhere. I plan on turning these into hair clips sometime soon.

Next I would like you to meet, Harriet the Hippo. Hailey first named it Bert then she started calling it Harriet. I think Harriet fits her better, don’t you think?
I had so much fun knitting this hippo! The Craftsy online class was so helpful. Hailey wants me to make the elephant next. I do need more practice, especially with my embroidery.
She will have quite the collection of stuffed animals when I get done with this little knitting kick.
All these guys are so huggable!
Harriet joined the group with Elizabeth the Fat Birdie and Jumps-a-lot the bunny.
They all sleep with Hailey at night…
Lastly, I went to a local yarn store for the first time this week. Oh boy was it fun! Well fun until I saw the prices. Yikes! But man was the yarn beautiful. They had all kinds of yarn and supplies. I also brought my hippo with me and asked the lady working there a knitting question. (Harriet has a lot of holes that I’m not a fan of, from the increases)
I think I touched every kind of yarn they had. I did spoil myself and get three balls of yarn for Hailey’s stuffed animals. That will probably be my last purchase there.
Every Thursday they have a fun get together where you just knit, crochet or spin with a group. I want to try it out sometime but it’s hard to do since Kyle is out of town so much.
I hope everyone has a great weekend! I’ll be spending more time outside with the fam. I will also probably start Hailey’s elephant. Yay!
