Busy busy busy

I got my birthday swap package. (Thank you Eileen!) My package to her can be seen here.

(not pictured here, two chocolate bars that were fairly quickly eaten)

Spring is coming... or maybe even here these days.

I am still knitting a little bit.

This is some mohair I got from a Swap (from Sue) and I found an easy stole/shawl pattern and worked a couple of rows and then brought it with me to the hospital. I actually did work on it some there (when someone else was holding the new one, or when I just needed to do something yarny or go nuts - new babies sleep a lot, me? not so much while in the hospital)

Other than that I've been


...a little...


(pictures at 3 days, 2 weeks, and 3 weeks respectively, yes that is the baby surprise jacket I made for him. I normally don't post pictures of the kids for their current and future safety and privacy, there will be an exception for a few more months of baby pics I think before he'll go undercover. We're thinking about a blog-name for him. ...leaning towards 'Tomato' due to the glint of his hair - any better ideas?)

A New Family Member

A new little baby has joined our family. He was born on Monday and we came home today. He has decided to try to sleep through his first hours being home with big sisters. He is very sweet and cute and was just a bit over 8 lbs and a full 21 inches long. If you're part of the family and haven't seen pictures yet, send a quick email! More general pictures of him (in his knitted items of course) to follow sometime over the next week... after I sleep of course.
