a friend from high school had her first baby last month! sweet little charlotte was born 4/17/12, they live in michigan so i haven't been able to meet her yet, but i can't wait.

since i didn't get my act together to knit her something before her arrival, i made charlotte a one month birthday gift! ;) this is the cutest little owl sleep sack (not really for sleeping, for cuddling!)

i hope she likes it, and i hope it fits! <3

recently i decided on a huge goal for myself, and i am REALLY excited about it. i plan on hiking the pacific crest trail. its a 2,500 mile hike from the border of mexico to the border of canada. my goal is to prepare for it this year and begin next april. it takes about 5 months to thruhike and i couldn't be more excited about doing it.

i know its going to be one of (if not the hardest) things i do in my life, but i think it will be so life changing and worth it that i cannot wait.

i've been reading and researching about it nonstop and i know a nice handknit balaclava will come in handy during the cold nights and snowy days :)

i know i have a year to prepare, but hopefully as i get things more in order i can report back and really make this trip a reality.
