Isn't she the cutest baby ever! My first grandchild. Oh, the wonders of e-mail and digital cameras. Even though she's across the country I have a picture already. She was born at 11:47 Eastern time today.
I can't really believe it yet. I've been knitting like mad for this day and I'm still knitting more but wow, here she is!! And in just a week I'll get to see her when I get to go out and "help" them. Any one who is already a Grandma will know that it's a privilege to do anything I can for my daughter, son-and-law and new baby. They named her Abigail and she weighs 5lb. 11oz. She is 19 inches long. That means newborn stuff will fit her longer.
I finished the Tulip Baby Cardigan today and I'm starting another baby sweater right away. I wouldn't want her to be cold right?
The Tulip sweater was just a joy to knit. I did get that slow start because of knit night. (Couldn't be my own fault that I started it on needles 2 sizes too big could it) When I got going on it I just couldn't stop because I had to see what the next color would look like. I have enough yarn so that with moving the colors around I could make a couple more. The Bunny Hop yarn is so soft and nice to work with. I hope it will take washing well - I haven't been able to find info on its durability. If you look at my Ravelry project page for it I figured out how much yarn I used of each color. So if Kelly wanted to make up kits - hint, hint. BTW I got gauge exactly when I used the right size needles. The pattern was very well written and I followed it exactly except I picked up 4 stitches around the corners because I thought the picture on the pattern looked kind of scrunchy on the corners. I've never done attached i-cord and with these instructions it was a breeze. It looks so cool as the edging-I'm going to be using it all the time now that I know how.
