Travel Knitting Off the Needles!

While we were in Chicago, our family received exciting news: the twins arrived very early on April 2nd and weighed in at 6 lbs. 13 oz. and 6 lbs. 9 oz.!!! Mama and boys are home doing well, and I am sure they are happy to have Bebob and Nana there helping out.  I was highly motivated to finish these hats and booties and get them mailed before they were too small.


Now I am working on a couple of larger booties that should last a while longer. One pair is done and the other will be exactly like them. The second pair is well under way, and I hope to finish them over the weekend.



My other finish was another short row scarf.  I love that pattern!  This time the yarn is Plymouth's Gina.


No sign of the deer this week, but look what welcomed us home!  Some years ago DS gave me this azalea tree for Mother's Day, and each year it's prettier. (Looks like we need to do some raking, doesn't it?)


Bye, I'm off to make a dessert to take over to the local GKs' house tomorrow. Have a great weekend! And check out Patchwork Times to see what others are knitting.
