Honestly, I don't know the answers to my own questions. I only know that I really miss blogging and feeling connected to all of my "friends" in the sewing and knitting community. I know that I will not be able to blog as often as I had in the past. Why is that you may be wondering? Well, I have the most beautiful daughter in the world (strongly biased opinion admitted to!) who I simply love to smother with attention. She is also such a light sleeper, that the two times I tried sewing during her nap, she woke up immediately. But, I'm thinking of moving my sewing area from the well lit upstairs bedroom, to the dark basement. I can sacrifice natural light for the chance that I may sew something.
Of course this post wouldn't be worth the bother if that's all I wanted to share with you, so I thought I would show off a few knitted items, modeled by the most beautiful girl ever (again, strongly biased opinion admitted to).
First up is the Antler Hat by Melody Rogers. I knit this while I was pregnant and 100% sure that I was having a boy, because a mother just knows . . . Also my dad had told me, I hope the bump is a buck! When my daughter arrived, I still felt the hat just suited her, so I added a flower as I snapped this picture for her birth announcement.

The last project I have is the GAP-tastic cowl (by Jen Renee) that I knit for my little sister. I finished this one up on December 24th and immediately had my daughter model it. Because I am an overly-proud mother, I stuck a few of these photos with the cowl for my sister to open on Christmas. Hey, aunties always want more photos of their nieces, right? Luckily my over-zealous need to share photos of my little one was not in vain, auntie proudly displays this picture at work. Oh, did you want to know about the cowl? Well, it is a super fast knit (a refreshing change from knitting with lace yarn) and a very easy pattern to follow. Plus, I love the yarn that I used - MountainTop Chalet by Classic Elite Yarns.
