cloud nine

last time you saw wooly wonka anne's tupelo gold , it was an eeeny weeny square on dpns.

now it is a baby bee blanket.


all squinched up.




having a nice relaxing bath and conditioning.



blocked glamor shot.



next time you see the baby bee blanket, it will be wrapped around my brand new granddaughter!

the call came yesterday around 11:30, and baby was born at 12:22 p.m.i threw some clothes (and baby blankets) in a bag and jumped in the car.

ten and a half hours later i made it to pensacola and got to see my baby for the first time! she weighs 6 lb 8 oz, has a full head of curly blonde hair and a cleft in her tiny chin just like her mom :-)



my happy new family, son bart, ddil natalie and the new baby girl, i'll call her gingersnap on the blog.




isn't she a doll? and so pink!

my wrist is much better! i have been wearing my brace like a good girl, on the drive i noticed, no pins and needles at all in my fingertips.

Congrats! That blankie was finished just in time.
I'm really glad your wrist is getting better. Doesn't seem to have hampered you knitting though...

Congratulations on the beautiful new granddaughter! I don't know if she's your first or not, but if she is, you're in for a treat. Mine is 8 months old this week and it's hard to imagine a time when she wasn't in our lives. Being a grandmother is the best thing in the world. Enjoy.

Congratulations Grandma! And the same to the new parents. Gingersnap sure is cute! I was going to say that now you have something to distract you from not being able to knit, but the wrist getting better is better news!

May all of us who are grandmas with a wrist that is supposed to put us out of commission produce such a work of beauty! Since I struggle with large lace projects, maybe I should wear a brace!lol
Congratulations indeed!
