A little beret...
When I went to see Island Girl and family, I took my knitting of course. I finished a mini beret for mini Island Boy but since he is a preemie, it is still too big. I made it out of Debbie Bliss cotton (I don't remember the exact yarn name) and made it stripes. The pattern is Woolley Wormhead Baby Rollin' Beret and it is the second one I have knit. I love Woolley's hats and have purchased several of her patterns. They are fun knits.
Mini Island Boy is growing nicely. He weighed in at an amazing 7#12oz last week and that is quite a feat for a little guy who isn't even supposed to be here for another 2 weeks. Island Girl is progressing nicely from her pre-eclampsia and is almost off all the blood pressure meds. What a horrible disease. Island Boy has settled into his role as daddy very proudly. I came home after 12 days with them.
I am expecting the new Hiya Hiya Large Interchangeable needle sets in the shop most any day. I also expect them to go very fast but will have more on order..
As for my vegetable garden, it is doing okay. The tomatoes seem to be suffering from something, the leaves are all curling up. But the zucchini in my garden is the size of a submarine. I have never seen such large zucchini in my life. I blanched and froze some the other day and I guess I will also make some zucchini bread.
That's about it for now. Also I am happy to report I have finally finished my 2009 family scrapbook as of this afternoon. So many crafts and not enough hours in my day!
