You Have to Spend Money To Make Money

Happy Spring! Happy Friday!

So... I thought I might have an actual FO report for you today, but not quite. Emma's umbilical cord hat is almost off the needles, just an inch or two of i-cord left. What I do have to share is some great modeling shots of the first umbilical cord hat which I made at the end of July for then-new-baby Ethan. I think it was one of those "can't find size 7 circs, I'll just use 8's" moments, which resulted in a bit bigger hat than I would have liked... as it actually fits him quite nicely now.

Isn't Ethan the perfect little model? I just want to squeeze those little cheeks!

In more baby hat news, Emma's first hat is already looking a bit small on her. I had actually made two, since the first one came out super-tiny-preemie sized...

Here are some other cute, smiley shots...

I just adore seeing all these smiling, laughing shots of her. Such a happy baby... she doesn't even seem to mind that Auntie knit her such a tiny little hat. Don't worry baby girl... there are plenty more cashmere-blend baby knits where that one came from!

Time for some Fill-Ins...

1. Why do we have to work on this fine Friday, the first day of spring?
2. Stiching 'n bitching are now habits.
3. I have not figured out what I want for lunch yet.
4. I had never heard the phrase "you have to spend money to make money" so often before as I do now that I have my Lapdog Creations side business selling on etsy, etc. and it is so incredibly true.
5. I need to just get everything done... the way I always do.
6. How was I to know she'd grow up to be such a self-centered, disrespectful young adult.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to visiting Emma and her parents, tomorrow my plans include hitting the garage sale at the Life Is Good factory and Sunday, I want to hang out at home with Matt & the furbabies, watching the Bristol race and getting some knitting done!

Ethan says "that's all folks... enjoy your Friday!"

The kids are cuties and so are the furbabies! The knitting is beautiful too. We have three teens and three furbabies of our own. The chocolate lab is spitting her slimy tennis ball at me now because she's not getting my full attention. Have a great weekend!
