Friday Catch Up

Its finally Friday... and finally time to play a little bloggy catch up! Grab a cuppa your favorite beverage and settle in, this is gonna be a long one...

First up, a couple of FO's from last weekend. The umbilical cord hat for Emma (yes, yes... its a Ravelry project link... if you're not a member, just sign up already) is finished.

A quick and easy knit, with a really cute result! This is the second one I'vs made and, once again, used Rowan All Season Cotton, which I am really liking. Because of the blend, its more "silky" than traditional cottons and I'll definitley use it again, especially for baby items. As usual, I had some helpers during the photo shoot...

They just wanted to eat the poor model, which is actually going to be a birthday present for another little girl (though I still need to dress him). I did a good job of hiding his "tags" here...

Speaking of Emma, the first hat I made for her actually fits quite nicely! I was able to spend a lot of time with her last Friday and snapped some cute shots of her modeling it.

In more hat news... here is the Care Wear Preemie Jester Hat. This is one of the hats that we'll be donating to the Special Care Nursery in honor of Emma. Thank you to everyone who's already sent some in and to those coming (I'll be sure to photo the group before donating)! Emma's Mom & I are planning to deliver them in person on April 11 - just in time for Easter.

A very quick knit, I used some Moda Dea Baby Talk that I found in my stash. The pom-poms were actually what took the longest! I have some pom-pom makers that my Mom gave me when I first got back into knitting and I don't think I've ever mastered the frustrating process. It took five attempts to acheive these two tiny pom-poms!


While trying to finish off some quick things last weekend, my cozy for my new cell phone finally came off the needles. I actually set this aside for quite awhile since I had gotten a cover for it and don't really know how much I'll use the cozy. However it will also fit my digital camera, for which I did the first cozy for last summer (the red one). Yarn was Rowan Siena.

Quick etsy plug! I added two more yarn cutters to my shop. These were on consignment at a LYS, but they seem to do better on etsy. I am still listing new sets of stitch markers off and on. If you don't see what you're looking for, please ask.

I'm hoping to accomplish a bit of knitting over the weekend, including getting started on some more cute things for Emma. After all, how can I resist? Baby girls are just so much fun to shop and knit for! There's a few different things going on that we would like to get to this weekend, as well as visting the munchkin and bringing some more things up to her Mom & Dad.

I know this post is getting long, but I can't help leave you with few more pictures...

Auntie finally got to hold her!

Little munchkin decided she was done with her feeding tube on Wednesday afternoon and removed it herself. Yup, she's related for sure...

Wow, your needles must be smoking. Baby things are fun to knit because they work up so fast. I like instant gratification as much as the next gal.

First off must say your yarn cutters are AWESOME! I use mine all the time!

And the hat is cute but the baby is cuter.: )
