Yarn Along {Welcome Baby Abilene}

I've been gone a little while because our tiny bundle has finally arrived! 
Abilene Cecilia Belle (We're calling her Billie for short) arrived at 1:34 pm on November 1st. 
She's been, by far, our best "sleeper" ever, and is looking a lot like her big brother Zeke and her big sister Lotte.(who is smitten, but a touch jealous of all the attention. We're fully confident that she'll recover sooner or later.)

I finally have someone to wear all those ridiculously small garments that I've been working on.
Sweater: Wheatfield
Longies: Pantaloons

Booties: Baby Feets
Hat: From Where You Were Plucked (pictured at bottom)

I have been plugging away at a few gifts since she's been born, but I can't mention them because, well, they're gifts! Knitting time has slowed considerably since my arms are occupied most of the day (I do knit some with her in my arms), but i'm soaking up every moment of this that I can because I know it's only a matter of months before she'll be wanting out of my arms and down on the floor with her siblings.

 This goes by too fast, nothing is going to keep me from enjoying it while I can. Even knitting. ;)

Binding off,



  1. Congratulations! The hat and the sweater look great together. I've been working on a lot of baby knits lately for "some day." Hopefully sooner rather than later. :)

  2. She is just beautiful! Congratulations to you and your family on the newest member.

  3. Congratulations! The first picture is divine! She looks so chubby and cheeky :-)
    Your baby knits are beautiful! My daughter is 'only' four months and has outgrown everything. She is also very close now to 'wanting out of my arms' - therefore yes, let's savour this special time moment by moment!
