I am knitting all the time. Trying to finish a baby sweater for Chase who was born a week ago today.

I have officially finished two christmas presents now. The aforementioned hat and a fisherman style hat for my brother. I still have

MOM - Tea towels from Mason Dixon knitting and a winter hat with a big foldover brim
DAD - Beer coozies
HUBBY - Cigar gloves
BROTHERS GIRL - Warshrags and hotpads
GODSON - Baby Sweater
MIL - purple heart doilys
SIL - scarf
NEICE - Frilly pink scarf
NEPHEW - I am thinking Hello Yarns skull cap
BIL - hat

I know I have more to do but I can't think of what it is now.

Leche y el hacer punto, una qué combinación

FIRST! Don't forget about the contest! See below! Only two entrants so far so they have good odds!

This weekend I spent my time at the La Leche League Washington area conference. I had an exhaustingly wonderful time. This time around I didn't get a ton of new information but it is always nice to be around so many women nursing their children of all ages. It is very heartwarming.

I met the WONDERFUL Dr. Jack Newman. I have heard people rave about this man but I have never read any of his books and after hearing the man speak I would definitely recommend anything that he has read. I wish more men in the medical field were as supportive and knowledgeable about breastfeeding as this man is.

And yes there was A LOT of knitting. All around me. I loved it. I fel in love with a yarn I have not seen. There was a woman knitting a sock with Regia Bamboo. It was the most beautiful colorway I have seen! and so soft!

Jake had a good time. Riley wanted to come but I think I can only tackle one kid at a time at these things.

In knitting news I am on a mad dash to get my christmas knitting finished. I finished a ribbed hat for my brother and two washrags for his girlfriend. I am thinking of doing hotpads for her as well. I am now working on my first doily for my MIL. I have never knit in this small of a guage it is hard to get used to. I am also trying to finish a last minute sweater for a friend who is due soon. That is about it. No progress photos. My house is a mess......must clean!

I knit....I cut....I steeked

This is the super secret project I have been working on and not blogging about. So instead of getting progress pictures you get the end all at once
I made this Baby Norgi for a dear friend of 10 years who is expecting her first early next month.

Here are the sweater parts

Sew the steek guides. I did a crappy job.

I read that with acrylic yarn extra reinforcemnt is necessary so here I whip stitched every stitch.

Ack! Cut! No turning back now.

Now we can breathe sleve set in.

Finished!

Now I am going to try to knit up a matching hat with ear flaps by this weekend. I also have some chocolate brown fleece for matching pants and I picked up the cutest brown shoes at target this weekend. Do you think I could attempt mitts too????
