With the beginning of a New Year it seems rather auspicious to also be heralding the birth of a new child (a future knitter surely).
Sophie Arabella was born to Heidi and Mr. Absinthe on Friday, Jan 12, 2007, @ 2:58 PM. A healthy bairn at 8 lbs 11 oz, 22.5". Mama and baby are doing well and Sophie is the most beautiful wee thing. Makes me ovaries twitch I tell you. Parents are tired but happy and so in love with the fruit of their loins!
In the mail was this lovely little gem from the Sexy Knitters Club for the Sizzle knit a long. Filled with naughty little knit items. I don't see myself knitting a cotton bikini anytime soon but there are a few items in there that I have my eye on.
As far as my own knitting goes, Mariah has been resurrected from the ashes and I'm enjoying the cable work. After some time and much experience - Mariah the second time around is a lot more engaging and I'm looking forward to getting it done soon and have a few modifications in mind.
