I’ve been neglecting my poor little blog. I’ve actually been real busy, getting my life back in order after being gone for 2 weeks. And then I was in a wedding, which is where my new FO comes into play. For my friend’s wedding we decided it just might be chilly in March, and with our dresses having spaghetti straps, we thought a shrug would be perfect. So, I volunteered to knit them. It would be way to difficult to find them in the right color and style, so after the bride-to-be checked out a few different styles, she selected the Two-Toned Ribbed Shrug from Fitted Knits (Ravelry link). I finished them just in time! I haven’t gotten pictures back from the bride’s photographer, but a friend shot this one:
Needles: US Size 7 and US size 4 cirs and DPN’s
Size: 16″ for shrug on the left, 17″ for shrug on the right
Needles: US Size 3 Addi Turbo Circs, 32″
Yarn: Sandnes Garn Lanett in Pink #4101 – just less than 8 balls
Can you believe how freaking adorable she is??!! I mean I know everyone thinks their baby is the most gorgeous, but come on, my niece is just too adorable for words. My sister sent me a text message (actually my brother-in-law sent it as she was having a contraction at the time) on Thursday during my last meeting in Miami that she was in labor. I immediately changed my flight to come into Albuquerque and attempt to be around for her birth. Well, she decided to wait for me, my mom, AND my dad to arrive. The greatest thing was I was able to be in the room during the delivery and helped her hubby and my mom coach my sister. After being in labor for 25 hours and pushing for 4 1/2, I was able to see this little one come into the world. And I mean I watched the entire thing. And no, I didn’t pass out. That was a shocker. Oh, and the picture at the bottom is one with her new baby blanket, which was apparently the talk of the nursery.
