First - we've welcomed our newest grandbaby to the family!!!
(Yes, I know, that is not necessarily something "I" did, but I claim bragging rights anyway!)
|Genevieve and Jacqueline|
Here is big sister Genevieve holding her tiny newborn baby sister, Jacqueline. Awwwwwww....... Doesn't Jacqueline look just like one of those perfect little baby dolls that artists make to look like real babies? Mother and baby are both doing wonderfully well and Dad and Genevieve are absolutely tickled with the new addition :)
This makes eight grands for us now -
Wow, we're getting old!!!
I am happy to report that she is doing great. I'm sure you all know how relieved I am about that!
While at the hospital with her, I noticed a few things that tickled my funny bone ..... such as, the staff doesn't pay much attention to posted notices .....
And, someone needs to teach someone proper English...
My city-bred Baltimore grandmother had a you-know-what fit the first time she heard me say "cut" off the lights after I had moved to the south. She didn't care very much for "ya'll" "reckon" or "yonder" either LOL!!!
Knitting plain jane socks is the perfect busy project when sitting in a hospital waiting room or with the patient for several days. I managed to get quite a lot done on my current pair of socks On the Needles .....
These Raspberry Smooshy socks are making up so beautifully! These are the ones I had to tear out all the way below the heel last month - my blog post about that is HERE.
I wanted these to be fairly simple so I wouldn't have to constantly check a pattern while knitting them, but I did decide to add a simple rib pattern to the cuffs to cut down on the monotony and add a little interest ... so far I'm very happy with the way they are turning out.
Linking up with Patchwork Times for On The Needles!
Hugs & Blessings!
