Knitting Marathon

I was sitting with the children, homeschooling, and knitting the Retro Cardi for Grown Girls when the phone rang about 30 minutes ago. It was my dear friend L.

She was calling with the most wonderful news! They just got a call from social services. There are adopting a little boy. He will be coming home on Friday! He is a 4 1/2 pound premie.

I am so happy for them. There is no greater joy than a new baby. Which also means, that I have until Friday to have something ready for the baby.

The idea is a top dow cardigan, in a worsted weight, washable of course, and ultra soft... This is what I found in my stash. This baby is a little spring baby. The colors remind me of little yellow crocus poking their noses out of the snow... This is a great oppotunity to design a quick knit for premies!

It is 2:11 p.m.. I am starting as soon as this post is done. The knitting marathon has started...
