New arrival! (not mine!)

I am very proud to announce that I am an auntie, again! Isn't she beautiful?
This is her, one day old, wearing the baby cap I knitted up last night. Probably will be the only time she wears it. As I was knitting it last night, I was thinking how silly it was to knit it, especially out of Paton's SWS in Natural Pink (which is a scrumptious knit - I will definitely be using it again!), seeing as how it is in the mid- to upper-90's right now in Richmond, VA. Yuck. Poor baby, whose auntie forces her to wear a wool cap for pictures.

While I was waiting for her to arrive yesterday, I got a nice start on Mandy's Candy Bag. See?

I've since done about another inch or so. I think I'm going to make the I-cord nice and long and make it into a little girl's purse, since the baby's big sister, my first niece, was there while I knitted and she was fascinated by the process. I think she'd like a little purse. Don't 3 year old princesses like purses?

Here's the Big Boy with his new little cousin. I think he likes the idea of a baby. It will be nice for him to be used to seeing a little one before our little one comes in about 5 months!!!

I'm sorry I didn't comment yet! I'm never usually this late!

The baby is ADORABLE!
