Since this is supposed to be a knitting blog, I suppose it’s time I actually show you some knitting! With my secret projects mailed and my hands no longer aching, I have been able to squeeze in some stitching between taking care of the little guys.
I cast on for this Little Boy Blue Ribbed Baby Hat when I had to go to the hospital the Tuesday before Johnny was born. I was admitted for high blood pressure and needed some nervous-energy knitting to distract me. Though I didn’t knit too many rows then, I did pick it back up when I was induced on Saturday. I knit all through early labor (and received many comments from the nursing staff; some of whom were also knitters) and continued working on the hat after Johnny was born. The yarn is Spud & Chloe Sweater on US #7 needles. (Aside: the Spud & Chloe website is probably one of the cutest yarn websites I’ve ever seen – if you haven’t visited, check it out!)
If you’d like to see more pictures of Johnny, check out today’s post on the Knit Nook blog
. Kristin came over last night and was able to meet the little man. And of course, look for more Johnny and Leo on this page – I’m in the mood for cute baby and little boy knits!

Housekeeping: due to tons and tons of spam, I had to delete the posts “Standard Abbreviations” and “Guest Blogger: Kristi Porter talks about Knitting in the Sun.” Since I feel these were both valuable posts, I plan to repost a version of them in the future.
