had a girl. Lorelai Hope was born at 10:19. Mom and baby are doing great. To quote Dad "Baby is big and pink. And she (Becca) is amazing." Baby was 9lb 2 oz and 21 inches long.
Love to all.

Next Round: Using waste yarn, k7; slip these sts back to left needle and k them again using working yarn; work in 4x1 Rib as set to end.
Work 4 more rounds in 4x1 Rib.
Work Cable Round.
Work 4 more rounds in 4x1 Rib.How many stitches am I putting on Waste yarn, because later on it says.
Carefully remove waste yarn and place resulting live sts on two double-point needles; there will be 7 sts below the opening and 6 sts above. Attach yarn and k the 7 sts on lower needle; using a second needle, pick up and k 2 sts in space between upper and lower needle, k first 3 sts from upper needle; using a third needle, k remaining 3 sts from upper needle and pick up and k 2 sts in space between this needle and lower needle. 17 sts.
Can nayone offer some suggestions, I would really like to get this pattern done tonight.
Right now I have the most interesting house. I have one cat in one room, and she has resigned herself to the life of being in one room.
i just brought my new cat home to where I am house sitting. I have him contained to one room, and he isn't really thrilled about that. He wants to explore.
Then ther eis the dog. She knows that the cat is behind one door, and she an hear the other one crying behind another door. She is beside herself with curiosity.
Any advise would be great.

I will post pictures tomorrow, when I am really playing with my camera taking pictures ofHagrid. I was supposed ot bring him home today, but alass, his foster mom is sick and did not come inot work today.
I have been spending the bulk of hte day watching Next Top Model and SVU, it has been great.
If you are reading htis blog, and think something that has been finished might be for you, well. . . You will just have to wait. I will be posting some finished objects, but you will have to live in suspense until the big day.
Still waiting on word from nutmeg knitter as to the arrival of the little one. I have wagers placed on Sunday, as that is the wedding anniversary.

I know this is non-knitting related, but it is theatre related. As you probably know, unless you are under a rock, there is a strike going on in New York. This strike has closed all but a few of the broadway shows. This time of year is the major fundraising time for a wonderful organization called Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS
This is a wonderful organization that has been raising money for people living with AIDS for many years. Usually, they would have the casts of shows raising money during the holiday time, and the casts have been known to raise upwards of $200,000. The website for the organization has a wonderful store, you can purchase clothing items, CD's (the holiday ones are great) and many other novelties that are holiday related. Please keep this organization in your Holiday giving htis year. Without the additional support, they will be struggling.

This is a Harry potter Scarf (DUH) and here it is, pleasantly modeled by my favorite seven year old.
I am really happy with how it came out. Now for the next bit of cuteness.
Oh, and back on a knitting note. A few weeks back I got home after an OBNOXIOUS day at work, and in my mail box was the coolest package ever.
