knitting and sewing and fairs, oh my!

We went to the state fair last weekend. It was a gorgeous day!
Jack enjoyed the Ferris wheel immensely. Poor guys was too short to ride any other rides, so we rode this one twice.
Liam's first roller coaster ride was on this freakish caterpillar.
I finally finished a little cardigan for my niece who will arrive in September. It's from a Debbie Bliss book, and I used the oh so soft cashmerino aran. I love the simplicity of it.
I'm also sending my sister the baptismal gown we've all been passing around for years. My siblings and I were all baptized wearing it. So far all of our children have also been baptized in it.
Since it's been around for so long, I had to make some repairs to the smocking. I hope I did a decent job. It was my first smocking and I was kind of nervous.
