Happy Holidays!

It’s been 2 months since we moved, and I haven’t unpacked a single box of yarn, knitting books, or notions. Bad timing, too, as I’ve just been invited to a baby shower for a friend who would really appreciate a handknit gift. My instinct was just to hit a yarn shop, but we are leaving tomorrow morning to spend some time at my parents’ – I’ll have so much car knitting time on the way there and back, it would be such a shame to waste it.

Cue frantic opening of any box labeled “yarn,” “knitting,” or “crafts.” At the moment my creativity level is zero, so I determined ahead of time what I wanted to find: some Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage to knit another Beyond Puerperium. Good thing I have a few skeins in the stash – the colors are so vibrant, they are just perfect for babies.

Anyway, only two boxes later, success! I found my bag of Tosh Vintage! Now to find a copy of the printed pattern and pattern notes, hmmm. Maybe it would be easier to just print a fresh copy than open more boxes.

ETA: I just found the printed pattern and notes! They didn’t make it into any of the knitting boxes and were together with my office stuff, which has been unpacked already. It’s meant to be ;).

Until I’m able to actually show you some stitches, Happy Holidays, my friends! Here’s my little love being a love :).

    He is adorable!!!!! Definitely way cuter than the average kid (that is what hubby and I say about our kiddo to not seem totally biased!).

    He is adorable. I’m glad that you were able to find the materials for the project you wanted. I am moving next year and am not looking forward to packing everything up. A project for after Christmas!

    What an awesome Christmas gift to us – lovely photos of our favority youngster!

    Glad you’ll have knitting time while travelling, and your friend will get her handknit after all! Surely meant to be with everything falling into place for you. :)

    Merry Christmas to you all.

    Oh. wow.

    almost as cute as my grandson, who is 11 months old today–so they’re in different age brackets in this non-competition, anyway.

    nice to hear from you again.

    The gift sweater was clearly meant to be. Your little sweetie is beyond cute. He changes so much between posts and it’s always adorable.

    Your son is such a cutie!! Quite a good model as well. Have fun with car knitting. It is a great way to help the miles melt away. Happy Holidays to you all.
