Diamonds and Babies

Only a little knitting recently... but how much better is this?!?!?

My dear friend Keri and her hubby were blessed with the arrival of an 11 lb (!) baby boy this weekend!

And she was ready for him... with a sweet hat she'd made from some sock yarn and the outfit below. The bolero is from One Skein and knit with Blue Sky Organic Cotton. The pants are from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. She cleverly used some simple Sugar & Cream Cotton so they only cost a couple of dollars and a couple of hours to make!

I did manage to get going on my No Sweat Socks from No Sheep For You at yesterday's basketball tournament. I'm using the recommended K1C2 Wick on 3 mm needles. They're quick and easy but I'm not sure about the results yet. The gauge is quite tight for this yarn and the result is on the thick side... but I'm not ready to give up. I think the end result will be great. We'll see.

I've actually been pretty faithful to Bonita lately... but I did add some diamond rounds to my Diamond Lace Socks this afternoon. This pattern is way addicting!

And finally, I had to throw in the gratuitous shot of me with the so sweet wee one.

Very snuggly he was... but NO, it doesn't make me want another!! I'll be a very content visitor.

God bless Keri and her big baby boy!

I love a Good Yarn said...

Wow, he is a cutie! What is his name? His Mama sure did knit some nice things for him. I wonder if any friends made anything special for her?

Ah, what a sweetie! Well, I'd like more, but it's not going to happen. How nice to be a knitter and a new mom!
