Another baby on the way!

My cousin Carl and his girlfriend Katie are expecting!  That’s two new baby girls for the family.

I finished a small gift of a hat and booties set for the baby last night.  I used a soft and silky Red Heart yarn and the set knit up pretty fast.  I finished both booties in one evening.  Both the hat and booties are sized for a three month old.

I wish I could share some of my surprises for Allie here, but I want them to be actual surprises in case my sister catches a glimpse of the blog.

Hockey and Knitting

I may be a nerd, but absolutely love ice hockey. My favorite team is the Philadelphia Flyers, and I watch whatever game they are playing in that I can on TV. Hockey is the only sport that I will pay money to go see, too.

IMG_1176_edited-1_236x240I also love to knit while I watch hockey. In fact, I get a ton of knitting done while I’m watching it. Last night during the pre-season game versus the NJ Devils, I put a lot of length on that sweater. That’s about two and half hours worth of knitting time that I reserve. It’s my favorite cold weather past time….knitting while watching the Flyers.

I’ve only knit one Flyers-related item, and that this flat hat that I’m sporting here with a cheesy grin. I made this during the playoffs last year.

Here’s to the regular NHL season starting next week, and here’s to plenty of knitting. I can’t wait!
