Phew! Only one FO this week: I've been working on this baby blanket for a couple of weeks now trying to race my nephew to the finish line (for me: binding off, for him: being born). He won by a long shot. My sister's first baby, the lovely Evelyn, took 24 hours of hospital time to be born. My new nephew, Alden, took 2 minutes. 2 MINUTES. To be fair, my sister labored at home for a lot longer this time, but I am here to tell you as a first hand witness that Alden was born two minutes LITERALLY after Laura got to the Maternity Ward. It was completely crazy.
Anyway, I finished his blanket the following Sunday at a family dinner and he got to enjoy it right away:
(His face is less yellow and blurry than that in real life. But it is completely that cute.)
Welcome to the world, baby boy! You have a billion aunties who love you and can't wait to keep you cozy with knitted things!
