As you know, I put my expensive sony digital camera through a whole wash cycle and killed the poor thing. We were going to wait to buy another one, but our grandbaby is due in two weeks and I didn't want to use a film camera so I bought one today.

The peach sweater set is from two patterns, neither of which had my size of course so I had to do the best I could to adjust it bigger. I made the sleeves way too long and they are too big because I have lost about 35 lbs since I made this. I used Caron Simply Soft Light Country Peach.

The blue top is Estelle Dazzle in Carribean Surf. I had to make this pattern myself as I couldn't find anything that would have fit me.

The earflap hat is for my grandson for his birthday. He is in Cub Scouts so I made it Cub Scout colors using Caron One Pound in Sunflower and Royalty. I used the pattern from Knitt Gritty and made it smaller.

The last picture is my new knitting bag that my dd bought me for Mother's Day. Isn't it cool!

I love that blue one :)

It is a ribbon yarn and the only bad thing about it was it had a silver sort of glitter to it and I now have that stuff all over my house, on the carpets, the furniture, the bed upstairs where I laid it, etc. :lol:

I have a ton of it left and I may make a shawl to go with it as I made it to wear to go out to a special dinner when we are in Las Vegas in August.

The peach and the blue colors are both great for you. I love them, and your work is perfect. The new baby will be a boy, right? Or do I have you mixed up with somebody else?

Yes, we are going to have another grandson. Our oldest (my avatar) will be 7 the end of June and this one is due June 4th, but now they are saying Jackson will be born probably a week earlier so we are thinking sometime along the week of Memorial Day. Time sure seems to have gone fast!
