You don't know it yet, but you're everything

Just a quick, happy note to excitedly share a bit of beautiful news. (Wow, that's a lotta adjectives...)

My fourth nephew was born yesterday morning. Cooper Eric is happy and healthy, and I simply can't wait to meet him! You can expect pictures and more gushitude very soon.

So... I think I'll knit up an EZ Baby Surprise Sweater in a nice green colorway. Or, does anybody have a great baby boy pattern to suggest? Something in a range of sizing so I can knit one for his big brother Connor (13 mos) would be super. :)

*This little song, it's for you
These lovely years, here with you.
And you, you make me run
And you, you make me want to live

Heh - I was looking up which song it was in the title there before seeing the answer down below.

Kathy has made me obsessed!

Congrats! I keep hoping that someone I know will have a baby so I can knit something miniature. I started knitting the green gable with the cotton fleece. So far I really like the feel of it but it does split easily. Yay ani!!!

I'd love to see your grocery store! I miss mine so much. The scone recipe was from but now I can't seem to find it. It came out pretty but they were s bit sweet for me (I'm sort of a scone purist). Happy knitting :)

I love the free baby cardigan pattern at; I've knit three so far, and it's got a pretty good range of sizes. I also like that it knits up in DK/light worsted yarn, so it's pretty quick!

Yay, congratulations on your nephew!! As for patterns, I love the EZ Baby Surprise - haven't knit it yet, but as soon as someone tells me they're expecting it is going on the needles! Also, you might check out Knitty's Daisy cardi pattern - I've made three, and they're quite versatile, fast knits.
