I cannot believe that it is October 1st! We've been back in Savannah since the middle of September and despite catching up with check-ups with a variety of doctors I've been able to complete the 2nd tabi sock and I started a cardigan using my leftover yarns from the Olympic Haori I created last spring. I'm lovin' knitting with these bulky yarns and size 15 needles after knitting the socks and a summer top on finer needles.
Isn't she adorable!!!
I'm so happy to report that our grand-daughter Maja is doing very, very well and is now a healthy 8lb 3oz after her early arrival in mid-August. Maja spent the first month of her life in the NIC unit at Brigham & Womens Hospital in Boston where her moms spent every possible moment with her until she was released on September 13. We were able to finally hold her when we stopped in Boston on the 10th! Oh... it felt great to finally have her in my arms. There's nothing like a grand-baby!!! Here's beautiful Maja wearing the sweater set I made for her this summer... The hat is already getting tight, but there's growing room in the sweater and her tootsies are warm and cozy in the booties!
Here are my tabi socks... they'll be great to keep my tootsies warm this winter. Even though it never gets as cold here in the South as the frozen Northeast... it does get nippy.
