Monkey by Cookie A, for a sock swap partner. I like the pattern, so I'll have to knit up a pair for myself sometime. The yarn is by Crazy4Dyeing, it knits up really nice, I enjoyed knitting with it . A little closer up...
These are 9-5 socks that I knit for The Loopy Ewe KAL. For those of us who didn't make the coveted sock club this year. We're using up the yarn we already have from Sheri the Yarn Pusher. They are knit in Claudia Handpaints Chocolate Cherry, it's kind of hard to see the stitch pattern in the pictures but it shows up great on feet.
Now for babies! Not mine, thank heaven.
This is my only nephew Emerison. Yep, that's how you spell it. It's pronounced Emerson. My sister wanted an I in his name (?) she can't remember if it's on or en for sure at the end. You would have to know my sister to not think this is totally weird. But isn't he cute?! That's his favorite position, sleeping and not crying. Probably a good thing because this particular sister couldn't handle a grouchy baby at all.
He was born the day after this little cutie:
Introducing Alayah. She's just a tiny little thing- three weeks old and just barely back to her birth weight. She is not a quiet baby, she wants you to know she's around. She doesn't scream bloody murder or anything, she's just noisy. She likes to sit there and look at everything, and she likes me. Such a smart girl! She never cried the whole time I had her, which my sister says is weird for her, so we decided she likes me. Her very red hair doesn't show up its true red color in the picture, but it's red like her moms hair. Her blue eyes are turning brown, she'll be the only one in the family with brown eyes, seriously everyone else has blue or hazel. (She's supposed to have dark skin from her daddy- not sure where that went... Maybe my sister was confused)
My mom, two sisters, and their new babies visited me Fri/Sat, then my Aunt Marylou and Uncle Jack came up yesterday. It was really great to see everyone. We have had more company in the last few days than we have had in years.
