December ended up being a very busy month for my family. Malabrigo Baby arrived at the beginning of the month! And she’s a girl! So much for my intuition…..you’ll remember I was knitting a lot of blue Malabrigo earlier. She is adorable and looks really good in blue. I did do some emergency gender knitting the day after she was born and made another Mossy in Malabrigo colorway shocking pink, which I thought totally appropriate given the circumstances.
I started Bridgewater in Malabrigo Lace Polar Morn.
But first I knit Citron from the winter issue of Knitty with what else, Malabrigo lace. This made the perfect christmas knitting, mindless and soothing.
I spent most of December quilting which was quite different for me. I made quilts for the kids in the family. First I made my one year old granddaughter this quilt…….
She is bubbly and inquisitive.
Then I made my ten year old grandson this one……
He is bright and loves art and drawing as well as computer games.
And last but not least, I made my new three week old granddaughter this one…..
She is quiet and serene.
Oh, and that should be the last of the blurry photos because Santa brought me a new camera. I’m still practising and don’t know any of the settings but that will come in time.
And since New Year’s Eve, I have been playing with this…..
I am burning through my stash at a giddy speed and I love it!
Happy New Year…………
