Abbey Violet

It's been almost a year since my last post, and what a year it's been: there were major renos {we finally finished our basement}, a new car {our 11 year old honda got really tired}, growing corn {yeah, that one didn't work out so well}, discovering lego with the boys {now 4 and a half and 3} and finally learning to sew {well that one is on-going}! But the best part 2009 was growing and welcoming a daughter!! Presenting Abbey Violet...

She was born on November 19th. A full 5 days past her due date! We were just so thrilled to finally meet her. She came into the world to the tunes of Bob Dylan's highway 61 and to a handknit little hat that I made while in labour. It was a tad too big!


The delicious Countess Elite and the large size 9 needles were just the right thing to while away labour and I finished sewing on the pompoms (which I had made at home and brought along) just in time to push. Thank you knitting! It was just the thing.


And now of course so many knitting projects are calling...full of frills and lace and girly little things.

My heart is so full <3
