Baby love

Dsc03176A rare Sunday morning post to thank you all for your congratulatory messages about my pending auntie-dom.  I’m feelin’ the love and looking forward to kissing cloud-soft cheeks!!  My sister was here on Friday to soak it up herself — and she’s feeling a little chubby, but very fine and happy.

My contribution to Thanksgiving dinner at Mom’s — mashed potatoes!  Love that ergonomic potato peeler.  We had way too much food, as usual.  Turkey, stuffing, corn pudding, fruit salad, broccoli-cauliflower salad, two jello salad/molds, potatoes, rolls, and three pies.  We forgot the sweet potatoes in the microwave… that wasn’t me, I was only in charge of mashed!

On Friday, before heading out for shopping, I delivered the shop sample vest, a pair of mittens, and a hat to the most local LY/GS that I knit from the Cascade Magnum.  I forgot to take pictures…  It is not very flattering on me with the little tum I have, but it was just adorable on Kt, and she loves it!

I finished the Shapely Shawlette (Christmas gift) for my sister last night, but it still needs blocking.  It looks great!  And I cast on for the second of Mdd’s thrummed mittens during Doctor Zhivago — I was able to knit about half the cabled cuff.

Kt is pressing the fabric for her skirt at this very minute.  The sewing machine will soon be humming — and I intend to finish Ai’s skirt this afternoon, too.  Sewing duties will be finito!

  1. Great picture!
    Tomorrow is sewing day around here, I need to finish up the holiday gifts this week before work gets busy!
    Hope you’ll share photos of the shapely shawlette. I have some mountain colors wool that’s been waiting for the right project. I just might try and make one of those!
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  2. heehee! funny how something gets left behind at the big dinners. one year we forgot the onions in the oven, another year it was the bread.
