Finished item!

This one has nothing to do with the knitting weekend, the entry for which I am still working on. This is the sweater I made for my brand new nephew L. I finished it about a month ago, but never posted. The wool is Big Mexico and the pattern is a kids' basic sweater from one of Paton's books. It originally had a froufrou appliqué heart in the middle of the chest, but I like the self-striping wool so much better. I have bright colours and I'm not afraid to put them on your child!

I had to hustle on this one, little dude is growing like a weed. He's just over 2 months now and is at 13lbs2oz; close to double his birth weight. I don't think he's going to make it to wear this in the fall, good thing we're having a cool spring.

Game 4 baby!

My very, very kind BIL managed to schedule himself out of town every day that there is a home game this round. Lucky for me and my mother, my sister needs babysitters. So we swap game night babysitting duty for the extra ticket. I sat on Monday while mom and sis were at the game, and tonight gram will be watching the little dude (day after needles - sucker!) while I attend with my sister.

Even if we don't break out the facepaint, we're there in spirit:

See ya at the tailgate!
