. . .  or I guess I should say, "The baby's feet"!

Aren't these just the cutest.  My daughter Anna Maria, who is expecting, was here with her brother and sister for a visit the beginning of the week.  So I finally finished these cute little goodies to go with the sweater that I had made a few weeks ago.  They duo, along with the peach colored baby blanket is now safely tucked in the baby basket in Nashville awaiting the arrival of a sweet little girl to be dressed or bundled in

I've been doing lots more knitting.  One of this little gal's big brothers has a vest on the needles and as soon as some yarn arrives in my mail box, there will no doubt be another sweater for a big sister started shortly thereafter.

Needless to say, my needles are busy!

Wow, it's always so nice to find something in my stash that I can actually use!  I think that I had purchased this yarn for a slippers for a "magic loop" class.  I did something else in the class so I still had this yarn.  Easy peasy hat and scarf.

And this yarn was left over from granddaughter Eleni's sweater.  I think she will be more than thrilled that her new baby sister will have a blanket to match!  My caption was going to be: "Never too young for bling", but the photo doesn't really show the sparkly bling in the yarn.

I've started on an October birthday vest and have a couple quilt tops that are ready to be sandwiched and quilted.  Oh and I also whipped up  another plain white hat (acrylic cotton blend) for myself last night -- stash of course.

So as you can see, even though I've not shown you anything in a while doesn't mean that the needles haven't been busy!
