Pictures as promised....

Here are the pictures that I have promised, I have tried to upload these several times this week! This is my baby niece, Paige, she is 11 days old here. She's now 6 1/2 weeks. I'm hoping to get more pictures tomorrow. She was 6 pounds, 10 ounces, 20 inches long. She got really sick right after she was born with extremely high bilirubin numbers, but she's all better now.

Here I am with Paige!

This is Paige's pinwheel sweater. The colors did not photograph well, but it's so pretty, it's blues and purples. I am now working on the sleeves. I am deviating from the pattern, I don't think the sleeves on the pattern are cohesive with the rest of the sweater.

And here's Bella, had to throw a picture of her in! She was rooting around under the blankets as I was trying to take pictures of the sweater!

Pinwheel Sweater...

I am currently in the process of knitting a pinwheel sweater for my new niece, Paige, who I need to post pictures of, maybe tomorrow!!! I have been searching for just the right yarn to make this sweater. I finally found the yarn that I wanted in Joann's on Wednesday. So, Thursday night I cast it on and today I made it to the i-cord bind off, I made it through 2 sections before I just couldn't work on it anymore, my eyes are about to close on their own! I am up way past my bedtime!!

I will post pictures of Paige and the sweater next week!
