What a wonderful weekend!
We spent most of Saturday with some good friends of ours, the Rex's. Jason did some electrical work for them and I chit chatted with Lynn all afternoon. Such a great time of fellowship.
I finished the hand-dyed sweater for the Rex's son, Dawson. I love it! The color is awesome and the cabling up the front gives it a little something special.
On Sunday we got the news that our good friends Bethany and Ryan were finally having their baby! Little Jack Phillip was born yesterday at 4:29 pm. He was a tiny 6 lbs 13 oz and 20 inches long. Mom did an incredible job and both are doing great. We went up last night to see the little peanut. What a sweet little face. AND I can officially name my sweater! The pattern for Jack's Hooded Sweater will be up soon. I need to do a little tweaking to the pattern. Bethany is our professional photog and has already said she will be doing newborn pics of Jack in his sweater. Once she gets those up, I will get permission and swipe one for my album!
Next, up? Another of those 5 hour Fran's Hooded Sweaters in some sweet Bernat baby bubbles with blues and greens. The baby knitting never ends. . . I can't wait for the day when all the baby knitting is for MY baby, le sigh, someday, just not today!
Finally on Friday, I started organizing and decorating our living room. Here are the before pics. I am not quite finished yet. So after pics to come!
