Throwback Thursday: Jasper Surprise!

Welcome to Throwback Thursday! Today we’re talking sweater dress with a surprise:

Pattern:  Paprika Patterns’ Jasper, which I was lucky enough to obtain from a Perfect Pattern Parcel.  (Remember those?  So awesome!  I still regret not buying the boys one…it had the Knight Hoodie in it!  Alas, I did not know I’d have a boy then…)

Completed:  January 2016 (I only remember this because I got it done the day before, maybe day of, my cousin’s baby shower!)

I’ve made several things for myself since he was born, but have felt too overwhelmed with life to take photos and post them.  I still feel a bit of that, but there has been a change in the wind lately; a hint that I may be slowly wading out of the new-mom-fog.

And then there was Wren.

I had all sorts of plans about the things I was going to make for PR Weekend.  But like I talked bout last week, I thought more and did less than I should have.  The Monday before PR Weekend, I posted this on Instagram:
