Spoiled Rotten

Yesterday, I got my Baby-a-Baby Swap package, all the way from Sara in Portugal. I’m pleased to present you with the array of fabulous goodies that were inside. Iris might just be the best dressed baby around this summer, thanks to Sara’s beautiful knitting!

I couldn’t even fit everything into one picture! The package included two handknit tank tops, a handknit bonnet, a handknit pacifier clip, bibs, an adorable floral sunhat, a pair of baby denim overalls, a teething rattle, a tiny spoon and fork, a Baby on Board sign for the car, and tea and stitch markers just so I wouldn’t feel left out!

The stitch markers are so pretty and fancy they could easily moonlight as earrings!

I took a ton of pictures of Iris modeling her new wardrobe. This is just a small sampling. If you want to see a few more, check out Iris’s photo gallery.

Thank you sooooo much Sara! Bob and I are so tickled with everything you sent! We hope you and your little ones are all doing well!

Oh and…. Happy Easter everybody!

We gots laundry baskets!

Maybe I should change the name of this blog to "Knit on My Baby".

Snow, Socks and Sweaters

We had a mighty blizzard here over the weekend. Seriously! There were like, four inches of snow on my deck! If you live in a part of the world that gets real snow, feel free to make fun of our pithy pile of white stuff.

I am mulling over the possibility of sweaters for my husband. He swears that if I make him one, he’ll wear it. When I asked him if he would wear it even if he hated it, he gave me puppy dog eyes and said, "If you make it, it’ll be the best sweater ever." High expectations much? Geez.

Irony

I am a knitter who lives with a man who does not own a single sweater.
