Lots of New Pictures!

I’ve been a little tired lately (go figure!). We’ve been busy with baby stuff — I’ll update more later, but the overview is, everything’s going pretty well right now! While I am working on getting back into the swing of things in real life, I’ve been letting the blog slide, but please visit my hubby’s blog, where you can see some great maternity photos taken by a friend, and some more recent photos of our family, featuring our newest little guy!

I will, however, give a quick teaser — Here’s a pic of Brandon with Andrew, who’s modeling one of the sweaters I made him (that he’s already trying to outgrow!)

And for everyone more interested in knitting content than babydom, this sweater is Black Purl’s “Sock It To Me Baby”.  I knitted it in the smallest size, and it has been adorable on him, and will last through his first month, at least, but probably not much longer!  I get compliments on it EVERY time he wears it, and regularly get asked where I bought it!  It only took me 2 days of bed rest to make, but now that I’m back to mere mortal status (especially DISTRACTED mere mortal status!), I’m estimating more like two weeks for the replacement I’m making in the next size up!

I used Opal sock yarn (something from Kaffe Fassett’s landscape line….  I lost the label….) and it washes beautifully.  I am using Regia for the replacement sweater.  My only complaint about the pattern is that the body and sleeves are short — I do have long babies, but it still seems VERY short, even when a friend’s shorter baby tried it on.  I am making the replacement size with an extra inch added to each length measurement.  I highly recommend the pattern, though — just keep the length in mind!
