Shiny Accessories

I got a really good yoga workout last night, and I've been stiff and achy from it all day, but at least it's a good stiff and achy. I also cast on yet another baby sweater this afternoon (Ravelry link here - yes, Bethany, if you want to see this adorable sweater, you have to sign up finally).

Speaking of Bethany, she was a bad person, and is lending me a carrier for the weekend. It's very, very shiny. I don't want to take it off. Since I must acknowledge that I will never, in the normal course of things, be able to afford a shiny like this made by someone else, I'm getting excited again about making one myself. I actually printed out a pattern, and have spoken to the husbeast about getting the fittings for it (straps, buckles, etc.) - hey, he's home this week on Spring Break, he can chase the Infanta while I get some sewing in!

How fun to make a carrier -- I really need to make a ring sling for myself. I have everything for it. I think I will be selling my Calyx. I bought the large size, but it is just too big in the shoulders, as I am very short-waisted. Hopefully I will be able to trade it for a different SSC.

I'd love to make a carrier, but am a little scared to try it! That pattern is darling, I had to favorite it too!

I really wish I was able to make my own ring sling. Alas, it's been too long since my last attempt to sew anything and I don't want to even try when it's something that holds my baby. But I'm very impressed that you are making a carrier!
