I finished the Baby Mermaid dress!
The super secret shower is on Wednesday afternoon

so I was really happy to find the perfect gift bag

Any KNITTERS out there know of a baby boy knit
that I won't be bored with since I gotta make TWO?
(Plus a matchy something for a toddler sis....)

Turquoise Cotton ease
knit with size 5US Bamboo circular
and matching dpn's.

Stay tuned tomorrow for a Daughter bird
