She's Here! She's Here!
I have a niece named Sophia!
I can't wait to hold her in my arms. That's the new deadline for the receiving blanket. The saga is long and I don't have the heart to share now. But I will share the latest small successes. I finished 2.5/8 hats for J4. I have eight due on the 8th!
This is a modified version of Grumperina's Odessa pattern. It's really beautiful. I used J4's suri alpaca. Rachel and her sister Emily promptly informed me that this is what they want for Christmas.
It's been tough recently. I've been jumping from project to project in a frenzy without the usual peace that comes from knitting. I have learned a thing or two about substituting fibers but I'm not quite sure what that is. Whatever I learned I learned the hard way. Eeek. More later...
