Our New Baby!!

Our new baby is growing up already. He laughs & smiles & seems to know who are his mommy & daddy are. He is completely 100% breast feed & is gaining weight just like he should. He is not happy when it's time for a visit to the doctor, but immunizations are sooo important. He is 4 months & can roll over & is trying to get his knees under himself so maybe he will start crawling before long. He is in a warmer part of the country but g'ma can't resist sending a couple of light weight sweaters for chilly nights.

My daughter did not like the color of the raspberry swatch that I made. She picked out a different yarn, a bright yellow Piropo, that I am making into a long sleeved, scooped neck. pullover. It is knitting on the Garter Carriage & is pattern # 471. As I said before, Piropo is the ideal weight yarn for this area. Millor has d'cd all it's yarn but a very similar yarn is available from the "KnitKnack Shop." The Sport is the equivalent of the Piropo. Trenzi is the equivalent of the Trenzado. Both yarns have nylon in them & wash & wear forever. I also like the way that the nylon catches the light & almost twinkles. The KnitKnack Shop has other yarns by Tamm, & are the importer for Tamm yarns in the USA.

Just a note. Everyone meeds a Garter Bar. The standard gauge garter bars are fairly easy to come by, but for many years it has been impossible to get garter bars for the mid gauge or bulky machines without paying ridiculous sums for them. KrisKrafters has new garter bars available for every machine out there. These are new manufactor. You can buy the needle stoppers too. Please take a look. We all need to support our vendors as much as possble. Diana Sullivan has a wonderful Garter Bar Course on her site that is awesome.
