Sweater Time...

knit my first "real" sweater for my little one. I have made a reglan sweater, but I really didn't like it all that much, plus the seaming is just so different. I made the Lion Brand Kimono wrap sweater (can be found on under knit patterns). It calls for Lion Cashmere blend, but I substituted with Bernat Satin (it was what I had on hand and didn't know what else to do with). It came out wonderfully!!! Here is a pic of the sweater and of my little one wearing it. I plan on making this sweater, a hat and bootie set for gifts...I know of a few gals having baby girls :)

Baby pictures

Krista is 1 month old already! Where is the time going??? She is started to coo and really respond to us, she's been holding her head up for a while now...she is just getting so big! The kids are just loving her :) She is nursing great...really getting to be a chunky monkey. Here are some pics :) ENjoy!!

New Baby Time

Well, I cleaned out my photobucket account not too long ago, not realizing that my knitting pictures would be patient, I'll get them back up :)

We have a new baby...our little girl was born on November 28th, 2006 at 1:41pm via c-section. I was in labor for 26hrs and didn't get past 1cm, so we opted to just do the section (although the dr will tell you I wasn't in labor because my cervix didn't change, yet I was in a good contraction pattern). In any case, both baby and me are doing great.

She was 6lbs 8oz and 19 1/2 inches long. When we came home she weighed 6lbs 3oz and at her 2 week checkup at the pediatrician, she weighed 7lbs 7oz. Mommy's milk does a baby good! Her name is Krista Faith. The kids love her to pieces!! She looks just like the rest of them LOL.

In any case, I'll be putting pictures up real soon!
