welcome world


Jackson 6 pounds, 12 ounces - 19 inches

My new nephew - what a peanut. He was born Friday - and is just a wonderful little man. Especially charming when considering that my own 4-year-old is now jumping on her bed "I. Want. A. Kiss." since being put to bed a bit early after three chances. It truly is hard not to giggle just a little.

And other drama...

My Ingenue is blocking as I type. Hmmm. Before I went on to the sleeves, I thought I should block and see if it was worth going forward as it seemed short. But now, blocked - it might be okay - but I won't know until the sleeves are on. Worst case scenario...I may have to pull back the bottom band to add some length. Wait, no, worst case scenario is to pull it back to the cowl and call it a day.

Congrats on your little nephew. What a cutie! I have been wondering how your sweater was coming along. Wow, you are fast! It looks beautiful in that color. I hope you don't have to do any frogging. Please share a picture of you wearing it when it is all finished. I am very tempted to cast one on after I finish my CPH.

I think the sweater will turn out beautiful in the end. I've never seen a bad one.

Well, I'm just a bit behind you on my Ingenue....yours looks fabulous so far! I had to add quite a bit of length to mine but I do that to most of my sweaters since I'm a bit long waisted.
