Perfect in Pink
This is a project that I finished ages ago -- I didn't take a picture of it before I sent it off so I never mentioned it here. I used this pattern*, and a pretty pink yarn.
Most importantly, this is a picture of the oft-mentioned Bulis (a.k.a., the Cutest Baby Ever), who is making her first photographic appearance here in gringa-land. Being this far away from her for this long makes my heart hurt.
*This link wasn't working tonight, so I went to the cached version, and copied the pattern into the "more" section of this post.
