My hands ...

have been kept very busy knitting precious little things.
October has turned into "Baby Bonanza" in my little world.
Two ladies from my office gave birth to sons earlier this month.
Wednesday morning, my blogging (and face-to-face) friend, Bek & her husband, Matt, welcomed their first child~ a darling boy named Wyatt (see "Bek Life" in my side bar)
But the capper for me? The birth of my first niece, Malia Mei, Thursday morning! This is the first baby to come into my immediate family in nearly twenty years, when my own dearest Sam was born (Heavens! Has it really been twenty years?) My brother & his wife were blessed through open adoption, and have been allowed to be part of the last two month's of Malia's journey into the world by her generous birth parents. Please lift them up in prayer~ they've taken a brave, but difficult path, and will need love & support over the weeks to come.
I can hardly wait until next Saturday, when we are having a family gathering at Mother's~ since I'll most likely become a grandmother in the next three years, I need to brush up on my baby skills!

Wow! Sounds like a baby boom. How fun is that?!?! I wish your brother and his wife well, sounds like a lovely time for them.

Take care,

Sounds like there's something in the water. Maybe??? I need to get back to my knitting. You inspired me.

I miss reading you regularly! I've even gotten into knitting although I am still at the scarf stage of variations on the knit/purl!

I'd like to knit or crochet hats and or blankets for premies or a crisis pregnancy center. Any suggestions on easy peasy patterns?

hugs, gail

btw, how is your elbow?
