Baby Shower

I did make a little sweater for November Rose, I didn't get a picture though before giving it to Tara at her baby shower. Take my word for it though, it was adorable. It was a simple little cardigan but with the yarn I used it made such a cute look. The baby shower was this past Saturday. I took my son with me thinking that my nephews would be there for him to play with, but they were with their dad that weekend. There were other kids there though for him to play with. Lucas loves babies, he is so sweet. I went upstairs and found him holding a baby doll and he said, "look Mommy, a baby!" I told him to come down to eat and he tucked the baby in for a nap. I think I will definitely have to take him to visit the baby once she is born. My son would have made such a great big brother if we had wanted to have a second baby, but we decided to stop at one.

Here are the links to the baby clothes I knitted for November Rose, they are too cute not to share:

November Rose

I'm finally going to have a niece pretty soon! Between my husband and I, we have 7 nephews, and we have a son, so there have been no girl grandchildren. November Rose is due next month and is going to be a teeny tiny baby. As of right now she is only about 3 pounds. I wanted to try and find some preemie clothes for her since she will be so tiny, but I couldn't find much and what I did find was pricey. So I bought a skein of really cute baby yarn instead. So far I have made one very cute hat and I'm working on socks next. The yarn is self striping, creating different shades of pink stripes plus little rosebuds. I think it will suit her, it certainly goes with her name. November Rose is such a pretty name if you really think about it, sort of poetic. Its like discovering something beautiful in a dark and dreary time.

UPDATE: I finished the matching socks. I'm thinking of making a matching sweater next.

I'm a horrible blogger...

Ok, so I haven't posted in a long time. I really should get in the habit of blogging more. I'm finally using twitter now at least. I logged in to my personal account for the first time in 2 years to read The Bloggess' tweets. I love the bloggess, I read her blog all the time, and had to start reading her tweets when I found out I was missing alot. So I should strive to be more like the bloggess...sort of.
