WIPS WIPS WIPS....
From mommy's tummy....


....to great-gramma's arms 10 days later!


Here he is, modeling his one of his baby bibs, and his matching blankie!


And here's his mommy (my granddaugther!) when she was a little bitty thing! Sigh.


OTHER STUFF going on:

I have two cardigans all completely knitted, blocked, and waiting for me to find my seaming mojo! Where did it go to???

I knit the 3 baby blankies, the 4 bibs, and the 2 cardigans in time for the baby shower, good thing, too...he was two weeks early...due June 4th, born May 17th!

After the baby-crazy gramma knitting....I should have seamed the two cardigans...but instead...what did I do? I started a third cardigan...and then before it was done...I knit up 4 cotton face cloths!

So forgive me, the 4 face cloths were "truck" projects. We went over to the mountain property...and cabled projects are a no-no while trucking! Got four 8"x8" facecloths from one ball of yarn. Might use the remaining ball for a handtowel.


Anyway, today as I was looking at all the new FO's in Whatcha Knitting...I got a few more INSPIRATIONS! I love the Treetops Baby Blanket that ShanaHoo posted! I'm completely jazzed about it! Yup...added it to my queue and have the printed pattern sittin' right here in front of me!

Also VERY excited about the Duffers that GrammaLori posted! Very inspiring embellishments added to the tops of the toe...which IMO really makes these Duffers adorable and artistic! Great work!

Over at Rav, in my project folder...the two unseamed cardigans I mentioned are there as WIPS...but the 3rd cardigan, I took it down because the designer is a control freak, reads my notes, then sends messages about this and that...blah blah blah...doesn't like me saying too much...she's a stalker designer...kinda nutty...so I took the entire project off Ravelry until I'm done. Buggers to her, I say. I'll post it when it's done, but not one word outa my mouth about it. Zero. I'm peeved.

So that's wassup with Artlady.

Yeah, I wondered where you were, too! I kind of figured that meant you were in the mountains again! We missed you!

You look way too young to be a great grandma! That baby and your granddaughter are adorable!

Oh he's so precious! Congratulations! I too was thinking the other day...Haven't seen much of Artlady lately. Then it occurred to me that the time should be getting close for that wee one to make his entrance into the world. Looking forward to lots more pictures of him modeling all the lovely things you've knit for this little miracle.

Like everyone else says....seems impossible that this is your GREATgrandson! Jeanie
