My sister Jaime received the package I sent her full of baby things, and she sent pictures back of Liam in the Tangerine Dream blanket I knit for him. Isn't he adorable?
I love babies when they are sleeping like this. When they are so new I always wonder what they dream about.
See - I wasn't the only one who thought of the colour orange. Our other sister, Teri sent William a orange sleeper as well:
Um, yeah. I don't think that baby is going thirsty.
Here is a picture of the proud grandpa -my father, Guy:
Like the little pins on his hat? He cuts those out and paints them himself. Dad - I have an idea for those - I will have to talk to you after I make a trip to the craft store...
I only have one sleeve left to knit on Satomi's baby sweater (so much quicker than a blanket!!). I need to find some pretty buttons to go along with it. Since Satomi's baby will be a little girl I am feeling the need to get some girly pink or purple buttons considering the fact that the sweater itself is a pastel turquoise colour. I hate falling into these gender/colour stereotypes, but that feeling is tempered by the frustration I would feel when people would always ask me if Willow was a boy or a girl... well, sometimes regardless of the colour I dressed her in.
