Introducing...

Introducing Baby K, born November 18, 2007, weighing in at 6lbs 8oz. My new little nephew! He looks just like my Littlest One when he was newborn. I'm having flashbacks just looking him! I got to see him in person today, and he's SOOOO sweet! Almost makes me want another one. Almost. Getting too old, though, and I'd have to be guaranteed a girl, so it ain't likely gonna happen. (I'm sure I'll be babysitting lots, so I'll get my baby fix.)

Knit Nite tonight. I am on dishcloth 12 of 12 that I needed for Christmas gifts, so I'll take that with me. I also have a hat on the needles. I already made one, now I am making another the same color, plus I have four more planned for Christmas gifts. I am quite particular when it comes to hats. If it doesn't have a good shape to the top then I don't like it. This pattern is really quite nice and uses worsted weight yarn. It fits really well, too, since it's all ribby, and I think I may make myself one. The only thing I did differently was add five rows to the length of the hat, other than that it's done exactly as written. (Pictures to follow.)

We finally got our sock yarn order today. There's only one skein of each of the colors, stripey and solids. There are some really pretty colors. There's one in particular that M and I thought looked like Heddy, so I put that aside. I actually have that and three other skeins to take to Knit Nite to show.

Hope to have pictures next post. Not only can yarn follow me home from work, but today a new digital camera and photo printer did, too. I haven't learned all of the gadgets on the camera yet, nor did I have time yet to set up the software. Couldn't pass on the printer deal. I got it for $120, and since I also bought a digital camera on the same receipt I have a rebate to send in to get $80 back. It's not really the camera I wanted, but for now we figured we'd get this. Christmas is coming, the new nephew is here, I need a decent camera. Maybe for Mother's Day I'll get a fancy-schmancy one, and hubby can take this one in the truck. But then again maybe this one will suite my needs just fine.

Happy knitting!

Awwwww....so cute and sleepy! Good luck with the new camera, and I've been mulling over the new sock yarn and I may just have to pick some up this week. I'm liking the bright colours more all the time.

My gosh, what a precious little cutie! So adorable!!!
And yay for the new camera and the printer - good luck with it! It's quite a task finding out how new cameras work with all those little things and additions and gadgets they have these days - but I have no doubt that you'll master that all and will enjoy it a big lot!

How cute is that!?!
I am just home from the WoolThyme yarn shop in Ottawa and a nice new swift followed me home. I have wanted one forever!
Hope to make Knit Nite next week.
