A month ago, at 12 days:
Today, at 6 weeks:
Somebody’s been filling out quite nicely! And has been making the most of her handknit PJs :) She needs a few new pieces soon, methinks. Good thing I've been able to cut out a couple of Minikrea patterns today. I'm hoping to be able to get to the sewing machine tomorrow; and to record a new podcast pretty soon. With a big giveaway. I cannot wait!
In the meantime, I've been able to get a little bit of knitting done.
Seb and I are joining skills to make a crib mobile. I've knit 4 birds and all we need to do now is balance them all together onto the mobile frame that Seb built.
Thank you so, so much for all your good wishes on the arrival of my daughter. This has certainly added further to the happiness of these times. Also, there hasn't been a day over the past couple of weeks when the mailbox hasn't yielded a new package from a friend for our little one. And wait till I show you what my friends of our knitting group have made... I am completely blown away. So much love and kindness.
I do hope to share the handmade gifts our little girl has received in a future post. For now, this has taken me long enough to write! I know this will sound utterly cliché, but this post was indeed written one-handedly while nursing: it seems to be the only time I have for the computer these days!
