I just got back from visiting my best friend Tammy and her new baby boy, Owen (aka the inspiration for the “B&B Baby” Kit). Owen’s a beautiful, perfect and nearly impossible-to-stop -staring-at, bundle of mushy goodness . I started snapping pictures of him early one morning and clearly tired of my antics, he flashed me this gesture. He was unamuuuuuuuused with the flash gong off in his face. Heheh.
As is evident from this picture, my mom is DYING for another grandchild. Now that I’m married again, she’s taken to text messaging me name ideas for her mythical, red-headed grand-daughter-to-be. I told her to bug my brother with that request. It’s his turn. 😉 Thankfully, since mom lives 10 minutes from Tam, she can get her fix for now via Sir O.
Speaking of babies, last weekend we drove up to Dallas for my SIL’s baby shower. Her son, Sam is due in June. Dave’s already informed her that he and I will be Sam’s “cool aunt and uncle” so to begin living up to that, we found him a wee pair of soft little shoes with flying “v” guitar appliqués on them and I knit him this hat to match.
Pattern: B&B Baby Set, available free w/ purchase at your LYS or for purchase as a kit, here.
The drive to Dallas from Austin takes about 4 hours (with stops), which was just about time enough to knit up a Sense & Sensible-knitty scarf as belated birthday gift for my MIL.
Pattern: Free w/ VHC yarn purchase at your LYS
Alrighty, I’m late picking up web-gal Jenny for an early b-day brunch. Stay tuned tomorrow for a free wrist-warmer pattern!
