Lady Baby in red

Posted by Nanc

Another knit that I made for Evie before she was an Evie (meaning, when I was still pregnant with an unknown) was a kimono sweater. The idea was that we’d bring our lovely, new baby home in this hand knit sweater. Two things foiled this plan: sizing and weather.

Multitasking

What you don’t see off to the right of the picture is the laptop playing a podcast and surfing Ravelry and Facebook.

More knits

Posted by Nanc

Once I became more comfortable and confident around Evie (and not freaking out every living second), I found a small amount of free time to knit. It may only be enough for one row, or a bit more if she’s sleeping well. Anyhoo, it has been enough time to finish a womb, a heart, and a soaker.

This is the soaker’s story.

Saturday

Weekends are for sleeping in. Especially cold, rainy Saturdays.

I hope y’all are cozy and warm.

I got this “outtake” while trying to get a picture of Evie in her crib. It’s the old hold-the-camera-way-above-your-head-and-hope-for-the-best shot. The fact that the monkey butt is in focus makes me laugh.

Hopefully it makes you laugh, too.

Superstar

You may have seen snippets of this blanket before, but it is a favorite of Evie and ours. Knitting Auntie Petra, of Purling Ps crocheted it for Evie.

Oops

Posted by Nanc

I missed yesterday’s post, and by the time I remembered it was late. Hopefully you’ll forgive me.

I also screwed up when stating that Texas was done with its winter. Well, at least Evie got to wear her hand knit socks.

Some days I need a drink, too.

My Evie Angel

Posted by Nanc

This Saturday marked Evie’s two month birthday. I don’t have a sappy post written for future Evie to read or to make people tear up (you know who you are). I start to write something in my head, but never get it down on paper or on the keyboard.
