Snow Day

I got snowed in yesterday and got to stay home from work.... but I did accomplish something.

I finished up this "striped stocking cap" from "Knit Baby Head & Toe".... it turned out a little too big I think, but oh well, she can wear it a bit later than I hoped.

I also whipped up this super-soft little beanie from the same book.
The pattern called for chenille, but I found this irresistible yarn by Patons called "Be Mine"... It is soooooo soft!
I took a hint from the last hat and decided to knit this one with WAY smaller needles than the pattern called for and I think it came out a better size for a newborn.

I almost want one for myself! :-)

Under Construction

The baby's room is coming along nicely.... thanks to my Dad (baby's Grandpa).
The ceiling has a fresh coat of paint, the walls are painted, the window and door have brand new trim... its really going to look great!

My Grandma (baby's Great-Grandma) made this beautiful blanket... doesn't it just go PERFECTLY with the paint colour!?!?!?

She also sent this super-cute little mint-coloured sweater.
