Welcome Pierre Elliot, and other updates

Please welcome my little nephew Pierre Elliot. He was born on April 29th and weighs about eight pounds (lost a few ounces after birth). Both him and mom are now home, and settling in a routine soon, I hope.

His little hat wasn't knitted by yours truly, but by a hospital volunteer. Little Pierre Elliot had skilfully concealed his gender by hiding it behind the umbilical cord, so no gender specific gifts were knitted for him until his birth.

Lots of knitted projects are on the way for the little one. Here's one...

I've tried to take a close-up, but the camera doesn't seem to like either the stitches, or the colour. I'll try again later...

In other knitterly news.... I got my Wee Tiny Sock! Thanks Emily! So sorry it took a bit to post about it. I just love it! Thank you, thank you!
