Baby knitting and looking forward


It's been two and a half months since the birth of our daughter. These months and this incredible person light up my life and are teaching me patience, and so much more. While many things fall to the wayside with a newborn, I was able to sneak in some knitting. 

I have challenged myself to only use yarns from my stash. The blanket is a simple log cabin design. The red and brown jacket (ravelry notes here ) fits her now and the pink and brown jacket (ravelry notes here) should fit her in a couple of months - her weight has more than doubled since she was born! There is also a premie sized knit cap but it's already packed away and I don't seem to have a clear picture of it being worn. 

It feels as though a bit of the new baby haze has lifted over the past week or so and I find myself more productive than I have been since the first weeks of my pregnancy. My thoughts have once again turned to this space as I think about how to move forward. 

Becoming and being a mother is such a wondrous experience and no doubt it will color what I post. I do not, however, want to completely alter the nature of this blog - I want to respect C's privacy and keep mainly to my own creations and experiences. Expect to see posts more often and I look forward to your comments!
