Watson and Family Pics

Today I want to share a new sweater that I made in May.  I love the pattern and color of the yarn.  The pattern is Watson by Amy Miller.  I like it so much that I plan to make this cardigan again in different colors.



My photos aren’t great – but you can see the fun details.



It was really quick to make (which I appreciate), but with enough details to keep it interesting.



You can read about my mods on Ravelry here.



I ended up wearing it for our family pictures.  We took them a few weeks ago and I even wore one of the tops that I made under it.

Which leads me to our family photos.   Our new youth pastor at church and his wife are doing some photography and I wanted to give them some business.   They had done some photography for our niece and the pictures were really nice.  I so appreciate the support I got when I started my business, so I wanted to do the same.

Get ready for picture overload!

As you can tell, I really love the candid ones 😉






I have so many more I could share, but I will wrap it up.  You all know that I love photography, so I will cherish these photos.  I know I will look back on them my entire life and remember when my guys were little, all their funny expressions, etc, etc.  I already miss them, and they aren’t even grown up yet!  Sniff, sniff.


If you live in the area and want to give them a try, here is the link to their Facebook page.  (For locals in the area, we have also had Laura Jill Photography and she does a wonderful job too.  Go check them out!)


One last shot – because I love this face!

    How do you manage to get so much quilting and knitting done with two little boys? My two boys are all grown up and married, and I’m retired, and there’s no way I could ever get as much accomplished as you do. I’m so impressed!

    The photos are wonderful. Your boys are so cute and have so much personality. You are right to treasure these moments because they really do go by so fast.
