There’s nothing like a new baby coming to kick your knitting into high gear. I became a proud Auntie once again last week. Our new nephew was born on Friday afternoon, healthy and happy with a full head of hair All the babies in our family are born with more hair than most adult men.
In the past week, I have finished
A 6 month size sweater for Professor X (what we’ve nicknamed the baby). Made from Sanguine Gryphon yarn in Abu Dhabi colorway. Sorry for the crummy iPhone picture, it was the only one I took last night that was remotely OK to use. This would be my official February Sweater for the 12 in 12 challenge.
A pair of baby booties, also for Professor X.
My January Sweater. Yes, it’s actually done. I do need to sew on buttons still. I think I’m going to do the ribbon button band from the Knitmore Girls to give the button band more stability. I’ll show pictures and talk about it more when it’s all done.
And I started a new baby sweater, just to see if I can get it done in the remaining days. Have I mentioned I’m crazy?

Is that some of the bday yarn I gave you?
Syren, no that’s not birthday yarn. It’s the Sanguine Gryphon though! I got this in Portland at Sock Summit with this baby in mind. It’s got a very cool name… that I can’t think of right now.
nice buttons….what are those anyway? They look really cool and very different from anything Ive seen before.
Are those handmade wooden buttons? They look great with your color choice. Nice job!
The buttons are made from antlers. I believe these are some I bought in Alaska (caribou antlers) but my husband has made me some from deer also. I thought it was kind of a fun button for a baby whose daddy hunts.
