Newborns!

When I went home to Delaware, my mom had started a new project! There's a program called Warm Up! America, and you knit or crochet hats for newborn babies in 3rd world countries. They're for premature babies, and you can drop them off at any JoAnn's. My mom showed me how to do it and helped me with this one! She did the tricky parts, like the beginning, and tied on the brown trim at the bottom.

 This morning, I became an Aunt again!!!!! Little Ryan James Hollingshaus was born in Orem, and we are going to visit tomorrow! So.....

Look what I made!!!! All by myself! The pattern online is for tiny babies...Ryan was 9lbs 15 oz! So, I had to make an entirely new pattern...from my brain?!?!?!? Oh my. Hilarious. But, in the end, and after 3 movies....I made it.  

[ps - I fast-forward through most scenes that I don't like....so, Moulin Rogue went by pretty fast (i only listen to the duets haha), Be Cool is hilaroius, and now I'm on the Princess Bride.]

I am pretty stinkin' excited! [and sore....haha] Praise is totally acceptable.

Nice job. Watch out, crocheting can be addicting. It's so much fun and such a great way to not feel guilty about watching a movie and getting something done. I just crocheted my daughter's blessing dress. I just hope it fits her when she arrives. Congrats on being an aunt!! Yeah for babies.

Congrats on the nephew, and awesome job on the hat! :) I learned how to crochet little hats from watching youtube tutorials, when I was pregnant with London. Somehow couldn't justify buying handmade beanies for 3 girls all the time. :)
