Little pumpkin

What is it about the utter lack of time that makes one start a gazillion different projects? Over the past month I’ve started many projects, and have knit between zero and five rows on each one of them. Hmmm. Not a very good strategy, right? The latest is one I actually need to finish: a pumpkin hat to match Gregory’s jack-o’-lantern Halloween outfit.

Already four months old, can you believe it? Developing quite the personality, too :).

    I started the month with 3 WIPs, I’m up to 5 and no real progress on any of them! Maybe it’s the dream of holiday weekends and extended time to knit!

    What a cutie — I had to giggle just looking at him. You may not be knitting much, but you’re growing a lovely little boy.

    Oh. My. Gosh! What a beautiful boy. 🙂 Well, even if you’re not knitting much, you can satisfy all us lurkers with pix of Gregory!

    Oh my goodness, the furry hat is adorable! (um, as is the pumpkin hat).

    The WIPs situation doesn’t get easier 2 years later. 😉

    OK, I’ve seen a lot of cute babies in my time (and I had a couple myself, if I do say so), but this one is ADORABLE! So good to see a post from you – I hope you are hanging in there.

    Oh, c’mon… you’re his mom, how could he NOT have an awesome personality? LOVE the fur hat on him… has grandma seen that photo? 🙂

    Hope all of your life is going as well as the baby part! As we say in Louisiana, cher bebe! Too precious! I made the pumpkin hat for my granddaughter when she was about Gregory’s age, and it was so beloved I had to make another, larger one the next year! Be prepared! Thanks for the wonderful pictures–his personality shines through.

    What a treat to check your blog and discover a new entry! You must be so madly in love with that cutie pie.

    Blah, blah, blah. Don’t bother writing anything. Just post pictures of that kid. He’s so damn cute that I’m not even reading what you wrote!

    OMG! That last picture made my ovaries jump for joy and I am sooooo done having babies (I’ve had 4.)

    That just goes to show you just how cute Gregory is! :o)

    What a little ham for the camera! 🙂 Love the hat and the darling boy. Thanks for sharing him with us, along with your always wonderful knitting projects.

    Hmm, I think I see a resemblance to your toddler picture on the sidebar of this blog! He has such bright eyes!

    I think for a lot of people the fall is the real start of the year, especially those who live and love the academic calendar. It always seems to be the time to start something new.

    Or several somethings!

    I get the giggles looking at the second photo! Aren’t you glad you have a great camera? Forget the knitting for now; enjoy your baby!

    Knit faster, his head is growing. Glad to see the first year is going to be the traditional pumpkin costume. Our daughter slept through the trick or treating. LOL

    Very cute – lots of personality – wonder where THAT came from…

    I appreciate that your training him young to try on WIP

    Gregory is just precious! I can see you in his expressions. What a lucky baby to grow up with stuff handknit just for him.

    Your readers agree–baby is cute as can be. I have knit a couple of pumpkin hats and they look darling on the little wearers. Here’s cheering for a sprint to the finish line!

    Gregory is way ttoooooooo cute. Oh my gosh. can you have a cuter model? Please he is way too adorable

  20. Shel

    Oh my gosh – he is just too adorable for words. I don’t even look at what you are making anymore – I just look for pictures of him because they make me smile (and remind me of what my Christopher looked like at that age too).

  21. Mary Beth

    That is the most beautiful baby! How do you get anything done with such an adorable distraction?!
