3 weeks

August 26th 2011 by Jen in Knitting 0

I just found these pictures of the girls from late August 2010 on our point-and-shoot camera. Sophie is about 3 weeks old, Dinah is about 20 months. A precious time.

I made Dinah blocks!

June 25th 2010 by Jen in Knitting 2

OK, I love these blocks!  I love the pattern and how theoretically simple they are.  But they took forever because of all of the sewing (I’m not very good at it and therefore tend to procrastinate)!  I’ve actually had the knitting done for like 3 months!  The pattern is from Easy Baby Knits by Claire [...]

Pink Socks, Part 2: It’s a pair!

March 26th 2008 by Jen in Knitting 3

So two Sunday nights ago, I finished the second pink sock.  It was exciting because it felt like the first “real” thing I’ve ever knitted, even though that’s ridiculous because I’ve knitted scarves, washcloths, a toddler poncho, baby booties and a hat, fingerless gloves, a stocking cap, and whatever else I can’t think of right [...]

Aunt Carol’s Stash

January 23rd 2008 by Jen in Knitting 1

Dan’s great-aunt Carol passed away earlier this year and was apparently an avid knitter and crocheter (I never had the pleasure of meeting her).  My mother-in-law, Lisa, sent me what was left of her stash to supply my own knitting habit.  I’m awestruck at how much yarn this woman had.  Now granted, it isn’t cashmere, [...]
