Though there was a great resemblance in their ultra-sound pictures, my grandson now looks less like his sister did as a newborn. He has a handsome dimple in his chin instead of her little elfin pointed one. He's quite solid and by all reports came out yelling lustily. He has lots and lots of black hair and baby blue-violet eyes. Fingers, toes and other parts all accounted for. As proud grandparents we think he is totally adorable! We got to hold him yesterday when he was only 14 hours old.
Love the slightly worried crinkle and the hand on the brow. Thinking deep thoughts there. Either that or concern because I just pulled his hat off!
I was going to post my finished Swallowtail Shawl which is done and currently blocking but I don’t really have time right now. So it will be the first Finished Object posted in 2007. I was also trying to finish the Forest Socks for T-Man which would be Pair Number 20 for 2006 but I’m not quite up to the toes on them yet. Oh well. There’s always next year. Still 19 pairs is one every 2.7 weeks. Not too shabby, eh? And I’m one of the slowest knitters on the planet. Just persistent.
Hope everyone has a Happy New Year!!! We won't be staying up since my eyes begin to droop around 8:30 pm and it's all downhill from there. If we're lucky we can get soundly to sleep before the firecrackers, banging of pots and freighters honking in the harbour at midnight and perhaps we won't be woken up.
