Maggie is 18 weeks old!

Miss Maggie is doing well. She is growing well, yammering up a storm, working on rolling over and trying to sit up- neither of which she has actually accomplished yet but she's trying hard. She had her four month doctor appointment yesterday and all is well.  She weighs 14lbs 15.2 oz and is 25 inches long which according to her doctor makes her perfectly proportioned. She looks more and more like James everyday...but girly. I don't know how that works exactly but she is a girly version of her brother.

I've had some knitting ADD recently.  I've been working on several little project but nothing really exciting. I'm making another Little Pearl for a baby gift. This one is taking me forever, mostly though because I decided to knit it with some fingering weight yarn I had in the stash. So good for the pocketbook but not so good for a quick knit. I also started on knitting some stuff from Spud and Chloe on the Farm.  My goal for this year is to make most of the projects in the book and give them to the boys for Easter, birthdays, Christmas etc.  So I'm starting a little bit at a time. I started with the barn because I needed something mindless but I want to make the chicken for Easter so that will be next up.

Come and yarn along with us at Ginny's place.

I love Susan Anderson's patterns. I've made a couple from Itty-Bitty Toys and Itty-Bitty Hats and they're lovely. I imagine that Spud & Chloe at the Farm will be similar in style. I have it somewhere and I've thought about making the entire set for Husband's niece, who is aptly named Chloe. I may not because by the time I finish, she'll be too old and I'm a slow knitter. Then again...we'll see :)

Love Spud and Chloe! I made Chloe for my son (but he's a Charlie) and made a wig using Spud's twisted loop stitch. Also knit up the cow. Such a cute book! Have fun knitting it!

Maggie's face made everyone at the lunch table chuckle today.. too cute!
