Tap tap tap....

That's the sound of my foot tapping on the floor, impatiently. I got an sms late last night from my mom, telling me that my cousin had gone to hospital to give birth to her son. So I'm trying to wait patiently to hear the news about the birth of little baby Fredrik. Little baby Fredrik that I'm knitting for here.


So you see, that's proof that I did knit this summer.

There is a bonnet to go with that raglan cardigan that is taking from up there^^^

The model is Fredriks older cousin Frida, born in June. She's the sweetest little thing!

That is not all the knitting I've been doing this summer. My first real grown up sweater, the white Green Tea Raglan, is just missing half a sleeve. I'll finish it soon. I just have to knit a little bit more on Fredriks things first, because I'm loving the little baby things.

Oh, and I bought yarn this summer!

Because we love cheap but good yarn, don't we Marie?

Big cone

Yes, we do!

I just want to see cute baby pictures--if cousins are any indicator, Fredrik will be a cutie!

Yummy yarn haul you have there! Looks like you're stocking up for a knitfest :) That bonnet is adorable, and I can't wait to see the matching sweater.... and YOUR sweater! I'm having such a case of start-itis that I have lots on the needles, but nothing finished...

Any holiday that involved picking up good cheap yarn must be deemed successful!

Cute, cute, cute baby and bonnet!

Glad you're back!

You are a very dedicated auntie, to be knitting with that beautiful view behind you!

(Although I certainly understand the attraction of babies and their baby-knits!)
