Wow, time surely flies!
Tiny is already one month old. And grows fast, I can tell you. I spend my day mostly as his humble servant. Last week the weather was quite ok and we took our first walks together. It is a nice change, from spending the last month almost entirely inside.
The week before he was born I finished the first hospital project, a Peru hat from the Danish book “Södt og blödt”. It’s made from Rowan felted tweed in size one year old. The next project was socks to bring him home in. Sigga Sif came for a visit on a Friday evening and I cast on, using this lovely green Drops-alpaca yarn. But the sock turned out to be way to big:
I still continued with the sock during contractions at home and at the hosptal, until I got into the bathtub… The third hospital project were these lace and diamond bootees from a Rowan pattern. The pattern is made for Rowan cotton glace and US 3 (3 1/4 mm) needles and is to fit baby of 6-9 months. I needed a pair to fit him now so I used 2.5 mm needles and 4 ply soft. I started on the first bootee at the hospital, after the birth and managed to finish the second one 2 weeks later. They are wery fun and easy to knit, so I’m about to finish a second pair in another colour (greyish green). But the first pair fits perfectly:
