Babies Babies Everywhere!

Well, we welcomed Sweet Baby James into the world. We as in the extended family of the internets and of course I HAD to knit something for the baby boy. I mean up to now I have only been knitting for the Perfect Baby Niece Mary Catherine (who is being baptized this weekend in Raleigh, so there will be pictures!)

I promise pics soon, but since I started this silly silly post on 7/31 and I am just now getting back to pics today. I swear I have some. So, what have I been knitting? Well, a couple hats finished up and a pair of socks. A purse. Some baby stuff, a couple other things I am sure. Oh - I knit the Basalt Tank from Knitting Nature and thanks to the Errata, it wasn't as bad as others experiences. I am swatching up some Cascade cherub collection DK weight yarn for sock wars which starts tomorrow. How exciting!!!

Ummm...i will really update with pics and all here soon. I am just throwing this out there so that I don't feel so guilty. I will have to go read my personal journal to make sure I include all the knitting goodness of the last couple months!

I have been slack in my knitting and posting of said knitting. the only excuse I have is that I have been moving. I am working on sock #2 for the boy and continue working on the Mason Dixon After Dark Nightie in my sparsely furnished new home. just me, one chair and some yarn. it has been amazingly relaxing.

Need to get on the ball for knitting baby BOY clothes as my dear friend Nikki is a new Auntie to her best friends', Dave and Liz, new addition James Edward. YAY! A new baby to knit for!!

Knit update

Well, my very first sock is knit. Yes, there will be pictures at some point. I have since started and ripped the sock mate 2 or 3 times. So no more knitting tonight. Or at least on that project.

I am trying not to start any more projects until I finish some, but I know that isn't really going to happen. I am already itching to start one of the new patterns on Knitty and a pair of socks for me. And I already have a couple projects on the needles that I need to finish.

I did finish the Tess Camisole by Louet designs. Again, there will be pictures. Some day. I promise. There are a lot of really cool things I want to knit. Every day I see more things.

Oh - if you don't know - Knitty Gritty is back on DIY with new epis. I hear they will alternating with previously aired epis. If you are new to knitting or want a few new techniques or cool projects, it is a great show. Check it out.

Thought of the day: My hair and the cat hair is knit lovingly into your gift. It adds an extra special touch of love to everything I do :) or at least that is going to be my story.
