two finished projects

If you've read this blog for a while, you may have been aware that I've been hard at work for the past nine and a half months on my very favorite kind of project: a baby.

This "project" took longer than any of us expected: Stella Jan showed up on November 21st, 11 days past her due date. She was born at home on a lovely Sunday morning, and weighed 9 lbs 14 oz, and measured 22 inches long. We are all thoroughly smitten.


My second (and less notable) finished project of late is the Lucille sweater and bonnet that I knit for my girl. I used Elann.com's Peruvian Baby Cashmere yarn in parchment, and some tiny vintage mother of pearl buttons I found on Etsy. Love!

Huge congratulations. Really, very good work on baby building and tiny, adorable cardigan knitting. She's beautiful and wears the cute very well!

I have been thinking about you. I am glad little Stella made it into the world safely. Although I don't know if I can call an almost 10 pound baby "little"! :)
She is beautiful and I love the sweater and hat you made. She is a lucky girl! Congrats!!

Hooray! Congratulations! She is beautiful and I ADORE the name Stella; it was my grandmother's name and I always planned to name my first baby girl after her--not sure that's ever going to happen, though:)

For some reason I was thinking about you today and thought I better check a blog or two to see if your little girl had arrived. Congratulations! And that sweater and bonnet are absolutely gorgeous. I will say again, I wish we were neighbors. You're a woman after my own heart, Ms. Stephanie. Congrats again!
